CO-MSO 25th August 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 (Sunday 25th in 2019).

The same as in 2017 and 2018 then. I have, however, heard rumours that from 2022 the centre will be old enough not to be considered modern any more, meaning that food and knives etc. may be brought on site. Just need to wait it out I suppose.
