Please pay early

Paying with credit card when you register online will help us run on time. If you pay early and have to withdraw we offer a full refund provided you notify us within 24 hours of the start of the event.

If you have already entered and want to make the tournament payment then you can do this through the following general payments page for the club's General Payments Page.

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.
