Round 1 pairing

Please be there before the first round starts.

If you are not there when we start round 1 you will not be paired (even if you have pre paid). This is because there are sometimes miss communications with round 1 byes.

If you are running late please call the arbiter or organiser and we will pair you.

If you do arrive late we will pair you with somebody else who is late.
