CO-MSO 2019

Post by Tony Atkins » Tue Apr 30, 2019 6:03 pm

Like 2017 and 2018, there will be a Countdown event at the 2019 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 25th August 2019 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 (£13 for under-18s) - book at https://msoworld.com/product/countdown/
A 10% early bird discount will be applied to all entries prior to 30th June 2019.
COREA every Easter, CO-MSO every August.
