Registration - 10AM. Tickets will need to be provided and we will ensure every paid entrant is added to the longshanks event at this time. Round one pairings will be announced and tables will be assigned. Please ensure you have your local opponents setup in your longshanks profile to avoid placing against someone from your local meta if you so choose.

Day 1 wrap up at the end of round 4. The best sportsman, best painted and door prize drawings will be done at this time. There will also be a selection of smaller prizes given away at this time.
We will probably be meeting somewhere for dinner and drinks after this if people are wanting to hang around for a while
8/19 - Day 2
Round 5 / Fun Round 1- 1020AM -- Our fun day 2 event will also start at this point. Anyone who has dropped that still wants to play or isn’t still competing for the grand prize is welcome to this event. It will be run with an alternate format but still on clocks so we can finish the event with reasonable time. It will run 3 rounds at most.
Round 6 / Fun Round 2 - 1210 This round will only be necessary if we have 33+ people and if no one drops.
Fun round 3 - 2pm
Depending on attendance/when the final round actually wraps up we will give away the remainder of the prizes/ grand prize. There is separate prizing for the fun event and there are no entry fees for it. The event organizers are donating prizes as a bonus for people who want to stick around.
Feel free to post any questions here if you have concerns about the schedule. As stated in another post, the only way it won't be split into 2 days if if we don't have the attendance to warrant it. Hopefully this isn't the case though. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
