thank you all for joining BBD2. We are looking forward to a fun day of competitve backgammon. Here are some practicalities :
9 – 10 : arrival : you will be welcomed by Line/Isabelle, who will give you 2 drankbonnen. Upstairs in the playing room are 2 boterkoeken per person.
10 – 10.15 : seating at designated tables.
10.15 – 10.40 : player presentation.
10.45 : round 1. Clocks are started.
18.45 : prize giving.
Please, be on time. All matches start at the set times.
Do not bring your own board to the venue. You will not be able to use it.
3. Getting there.
Venue : De Hollandse Vismijn, Vismarkt, Brugge.
Coming by train is very convenient. Buses will take you from the train station to the Vismarkt every 5 minutes. You can also walk : from the station it takes about 20 minutes.
If you come by car, be aware that Saturday is market day in Brugge and that public parkings fill up quickly. Allow for at least 45 minutes to get from the E40 (exit Oostkamp) to the venue. Your best bet is Parking Pandreitje (8,70€/day). From there it is a 5 minute walk to the Hollandse Vismijn. Cheaper is the parking at the train station : 3,50€/day.
Players who will submit their matches as BPR clusters, need to announce their intention to do so beforehand. To facilitate match filming, they will be given a fixed playing table where they can play all their matches. They are urged to show up well before start of the tournament, so there is plenty of time to set up the recording equipment.
The draw will be done on Wednesday 24 February, at 18.00. It will be posted on this website later that evening, together with the designated table seating.
See you on Saturday!
