Try to attend tournaments at all
scheduled dates. Once you have entered a tournament you are an important player
in the club. No matter how low your score is you should aim to play all the
games in the tournament.
However, due to illness or clash of
commitments, it may become necessary to seek a postponement or request a
half-point BYE. You can do this by contacting the Director of Play (DOP) as
early as possible. The DOP will then try to contact your opponent to see if
another date can be arranged to avoid you having to forfeit or the DOP may award
you a half-point BYE.
Please note the following:
each player can request ONE
half-point BYE for any of the Rounds except the Final Round, but this
request should be made before the draw for the next round has been declared.
a player cannot postpone a final
a player who forfeits two games
may be withdrawn from the tournament
a player arriving at the board 30
minutes after the scheduled start time will forfeit the game.
Thank you for your cooperation.
