2nd National Draughts-64 Championship (Invitation 2016)

       Dear draughts-players,


       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,
