The North American Diplomacy Federation's 2010 Grand Prix opens this weekend at TempleCon in Providence, R.I. Jim Burgess will direct the tournament, which is now in its fourth year. He's expecting at least two boards in each of the four rounds. To qualify for the Grand Prix, events must field a minimum of six boards in the three largest rounds of the tournament.
The Grand Prix will take a break in March, returning in April with Chicago's CODCon Open, April 10-11, and then DipCon in San Francisco, April 16-19.
