CO:WY - Countdown In West Yorkshire - Saturday 13th July 2019

Post by James Robinson » Thu Feb 07, 2019 9:44 pm

EY OOP, WEST YORKSHIRE IS A-CALLING...!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

Yes, it's me again, and I'm back with Callum Todd to host yet another CO-event, and this time, we're going out and about in West Yorkshire, leaving my beloved Huddersfield behind...

Venue:
Our venue is the Lightcliffe Golf Club, just a couple of miles east of Halifax town centre and north of Brighouse. The address is Knowle Top Road, Lightcliffe, Hipperholme, Halifax, West Yorkshire, HX3 8SW. (For a look yourselves, go here: http://www.lightcliffegolfclub.co.uk/) Bus services from Halifax-Leeds and Halifax-Bradford via Brighouse go to the main road, and the crossroads are right next to the venue. The nearest train stations are Halifax and Brighouse, of which services from London Kings Cross are available on Grand Central.

General Overview:
Presented by James Robinson and Callum Todd, using the "Bristol" classroom format and playing along with big screen virtual studio graphics:

Based on the successful introduction in COHUD 2017, we're using a group stage format, players will be drawn at random into groups of equal numbers playing heat a set number of heat matches. This means players will know at the start who they will be up against in the heats.

These will be classic 9-round matches, as per the original television format (6L 2N 1C).

At the end of the heats, everyone goes into groups of eight for the quarter-finals, in order of number of wins, total points scored and +/- points difference. The winner from each heats group goes into Division A, the runner-up into Division B, third place into C and fourth place into D.

From here, everybody is seeded within their divisions to play a 15-round quarter-final (10L 4N 1C), 15-round semi-final and 14-round final (8L 4N 2C). This will be done in Swiss format, so everybody will get to play right until the end of the day.

The two finalists in Group A will sit out the mainstream final, to play the tournament’s showpiece Grand Final at around 5pm. So if you don’t make the top two, why not recharge your glass, sit back and enjoy!

Prices/Rates:
CO:WY will take place on Saturday 13 July -- doors open at 9:30am for a prompt 10:30am start, finishing at around 6-6:30pm. The admission price is set at £15 and includes a cold buffet lunch. There will be a cash bar available too, as well as tea/coffee making facilities. :D

As per usual, payments are available:
- By PayPal (https://www.paypal.me/JRTerrier7/15 (DON'T FORGET - Choose the "Family/Friends" option on payment.);
- By phone (0781 775 0544);
- By cheque (address available on request).

I was debating it, but maybe your impatient nature has scuppered that chance.

You need to learn to cool it, you're making more enemies than friends....

Having spoke to him a bit recently, I now know a bit more about him. He's going to reintroduce himself later on. He's going to give a full explanation later on.
