That's what we need Mick! By the way what is capacity?

Ian

I'm not sure, which I know isn't helpful, but ultimately would depend on how many digital clocks we have (which should be 65, I'm hoping to pick up 8 tomorrow)

I can't remember if the Citizen's Suite is the one we had last year, and of course there always seems lots of room, but 87 players is the most we have had

We did have to close the bottom section 1 year when we had loads of entries on the day

Great event, even though young Bobby Fischer had me over in the last round :lol: had my eye on the prize money there. Certainly the best RP congress I've been to.

Maybe next year, people should be politely asked not to alter the clock settings for private blitz games in the breaks - I noticed quite a few people have to call the controllers over (myself included) because their clocks weren’t working properly at the start of a round, because of this.

Wouldn't normal Congress conventions apply? Namely the clocks used for the event aren't available for private skittles games.
