Location: Gatwick is 15 minutes from the M25, easily accessible by public transport from London and not least the cheap short haul hub of Europe and beyond. This surely presents our European (and other!) cousins with a viable opportunity to compete against other domestic and International teams. Once arrived there will be very little extra travel to factor in, unless you combine it with a trip to Central London, which is 30 minutes away by regular train (London Victoria).

Venue: The Arora hotel is part of the Sofitel chain and has a dedicated conference space which we will use for gaming (complete with it’s own bar).  It is adjacent to the railway system – an 8 minute hop to Gatwick. Crawley town centre, with myriad eating and drinking spots a 2 minute walk away. Lunch will be provided by the hotel both days. The hotel has twin rooms from @£65 per night at time of writing. We have separated out accommodation from the ticket cost to leave it up to individual teams to decide where they stay (lunch, to repeat, is included). The hotel website has comprehensive details about airport transfers: http://Gatwick.arorahotels.com
Please note hotel parking is £10 for 24 hours, there is however an alternative open air car park 100m away which is £2.50 for 24 hours.

The Tournament: This will be a 5 game , 4-man team tournament, using a “Swiss Pairings” method for determining opponents from Round 2 onwards. Pairings will be used (details in pack). Lists will be publicised two weeks before the event. Where possible in the first round International Teams will be drawn against Domestic Teams, thereafter the draw will be open.

List Submission and Draw
Lists must be submitted by 23.59 Sat Feb 17th. Once verified they will be published w/c 19th Feb.
The 1st round Draw will take place Monday 26th Feb.

Living House Rules 

Now in pack.
