The BCA Big Bash!

Saturday 6th to Saturday 27th February 2021

Online and telephone event

Organisers: Gerry Walsh & Julie Leonard

An event with up to six games per player, where each game will be played in a single session over the telephone, via Skype or any other instant internet based platform such as Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp, Lichess etc.

Everyone must be prepared to play by telephone if their opponent does not have the IT skills or equipment to use the other systems.  Games can be scheduled at mutually convenient times.  The rate of play will be all moves in 90 minutes for each player.

Players will be placed into groups of 4, 5 or 6 for mini all-play-all events, possibly with play-offs.  Third party timekeepers will be rewarded with points.  The precise tournament format and points system will be determined when we know how many entries there are.

The event is open to all members and associate members of the BCA.  It will be controlled by Gerry Walsh and Julie Leonard.

To enter please contact Gerry Walsh giving a telephone number and contact details for the other platform(s) you are able to use.

By entering this tournament, you agree to share your contact details with the arbiters and the other players.

The closing date for entries is Wednesday 3rd February.  We're aiming to complete the event by the 27th of February so as not to clash with the 14th BCA Email Tournament which will start on the 1st of March, but there will be a little flexibility over the end date if necessary.
