ATTENDANCE

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 round game.

  • a player who forfeits two games may be withdrawn from the tournament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.
