Northern Virginia BG Club Annual Tournament (Added USBGF Money) Jan 27

This is to notify you of our club’s Annual Tournament, which is scheduled for Saturday, January 27st, 2018 at Bangkok Bistro 11:30 am. Bangkok Bistro is located at 715 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, VA 22203. https://www.bangkokbistrova.com/

Please be present by 11:00 am (which is when it opens) so we can have the draw ready at 11:30 sharp. There is no need to pre-register, just let me know if you cannot make it. The format and payout structure will be the same as our regular weekly events, with the exception of longer matches (11 in the main and 7 in the consolation) Any available byes will be awarded randomly. As always, clocks can be used if either player, or the director, wishes to.

Your eligibility and entry fee are strictly based on your attendance of weekly tournaments in 2017.
0-9: ineligible
10-14: $40 entry
15-19: $20 entry
20+: free entry

The prize pool as of now is $870, and will likely be close to $1,000 at the day of the event.

Bangkok Bistro is the venue of the Beltway Backgammon club, so I cleared it with Larry Brown before speaking with the manager. When registering, all players will be required to buy a $15 meal credit (in addition to any entry fee) that is valid for that day only, so everyone is required to spend at least $15.

ADDED MONEY – The USBGF is adding $130 to the USBGF member who advances the furthest!

This is part of the USBGF Added Money Local Club Initiative. The winner of the added money (USBGF member) will *also* win an entry into the free-roll inter-club Championships in March 2018. The winner of that online event will win an entry into the ABT event of their choice. They will *also* be featured in an article in the PrimeTme magazine and have the finals match analyzed by an expert.
