Like 2017, there will be a Countdown event at the 2018 Mind Sports Olympiad.
For details of all events at MSO see https://msoworld.com/events-woo-ev-products/
This is held in London at the end of August and there is a slot on the second Sunday
for a Countdown event. Top three places will get the gold/silver/bronze medals
and there would be junior medals too if enough juniors play and do well enough.

5 round swiss, followed by a final and 3rd place play-off, using the Bristol System where the same letters/numbers are used across each match-up in a round. Apterous dictionary to be used. This is based on the ODO which is currently used in the show.

So confirmed for Sunday 26th August 2017 from 10:15 to 18:00 at
JW3, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET.
This is a modern Jewish Community Centre - please note food and knives etc may not be brought on site.

Entry fee £15 - book at https://msoworld.com/product/countdown/

In that case, I think I prefer the old-fashioned ones. Also, the underlying situation has never been satisfactorily addressed.

After having missed this last year, I'm so glad that I've already signed up this year.

After Town beat Cardiff on the Saturday, I'll be heading down ready for the tournament. ;) :) :D 8-)
