Open European Championship 2019

#1 Post by Claesar » Sun Sep 08, 2019 9:12 am

Would you like to be the European Champion? You can be, even if you're not European (it's an Open)!

Come see beautiful Amsterdam! It's on your bucket list, or it should be.

Thank you for your PMs regarding date preferences. Trying to take it all into account we've decided to host you on the 23th and 24th of November. There will be two rounds on Saturday and another on Sunday. If you wish to sign up or receive more information, just send me a message.

I can even offer free lodging to several players, decided on a first-come/furthest-traveller/how-much-I-like-you basis.

We now have enough players confirmed for over two boards (including some international players), but we're aiming for 4-6 boards!
So let me know if there's anything I can do to help you come (pun intended).

Plane tickets are not nearly as bad as I expected. Now if I only had the time... Does this happen every year in Amsterdam?

Autumn/Winter is a good time to see Amsterdam. Not too many tourists and with the leaves off the trees you get better views across the canal.

No, I'm afraid this is a one-time event. EDC 2020 is in Milan. The next Dutch event could be anywhere, in a year from now.

We can try to set up a game if you have time. Would be a good warm-up event.

At the rate we're currently receiving applications, we might actually be full! We have a hard limit of 6 boards, so we might be forced to decline people :-( I'll talk to the venue next week whether we can squeeze in a 7th board if necessary.
We now have enough players for 4 boards, but not all are fully confirmed yet.
