To all Entrants

It gives me great pleasure to send you details relative to your entry in this year’s Reg Jackson Tournament. If your entry is showing A.N.Other or you have any changes to your rink please let me know as soon as possible. Also anyone requiring players to make up a rink please let me know.

It is realised there will be variations, but the combination, first to play, will constitute the Rink. You may make one replacement if need be. Any further replacement must be through the Secretary.

ENTRIES: These are at the maximum 108 - Four games are planned for everybody to conclude the Tournament.

SESSIONS The tournament will start at 9.15am on the Sunday and there will be Eight sessions on that day. On the Monday there will be Four sessions the first of which will be at 9.15am. There will be twelve sessions altogether, SUNDAY and MONDAY but no semi-finals or finals. An explanation setting out the pattern of play is given at the end of this letter. You will need to read this carefully. In the interest of all concerned we ask for your co-operation, not forgetting that the tournament is part of the holiday for many participants.

SCORE CARDS: These will be issued at the first game to cover the whole series of four games. Cards must be sent into the office immediately at the conclusion of each game, and will not be acceptable unless the names of all players are clearly shown. The number allocated to each rink as shown on the Tournament List will be carried throughout the event.

Third Session Sunday 11.15 (73-108)          All other sessions will be as your cards.

WINNING RINKS: The winning rinks will be the four best overall of the 108 rinks with the greatest aggregate of points in the series arising from - 2 for a win and 1 for a tie. If this fails to produce clear winners, then the best plus margin of shots from those Rinks on the greatest aggregate points will win. Should there still be a tie then the team with the highest number of shots in the series will come into the reckoning - and that should clinch it.
