4:47 PM2nd National Draughts-64 Championship (Invitation 2016)
From 19-22 May 2016 the next Zambian national draughts tournament will be held. We
hope you will be there to participate! In a tournament of four days the new champion of
Zambia will be determined, and the national team of Zambia will be selected. This team
will consist of the ten best players who will thereby qualify to participate in the African
championship on the 8x8 board, which Zambia will host from 22-27 July 2016. Take this
great opportunity to show your skills on the draughtsboard and represent your country!
On Sunday 22 May the tournament will immediately be followed by the AGM of
the Zambian Draughts Federation. We hope you will participate there as well and help
us to build this great sport in our nation!
The venue for the tournament and the AGM will be Heroes Lodge along the Great
North Road in Lusaka. The participation fee is K 100.- which includes lunch on the first
three days. For those from outside Lusaka there is some accommodation available at
Heroes Lodge as well, for the reduced price of K 100.- per night based on sharing.
On Thursday 19 May at 10:00 hrs exactly we will start with an open tournament
based on the Swiss ranking system. Just as in the African championship each player will
be allotted 25 minutes per game. After ten rounds according to the Swiss system on
Thursday and Friday the players will be divided in groups of four players each according
to their ranking. On Saturday every group will play according to a round-robin schedule,
after which cross-finals will decide which players will play on Sunday for place 1 and 2, 3
and 4, 5 and 6 etc.
After the finals on Sunday, at 14:00 hrs the elective AGM of the Zambian
Draughts Federation will commence.
We sincerely hope that you will all participate in both the Zambian national tournament
and the AGM to uplift this wonderful sport.
On behalf of the organizing committee,
