A few update

I've pasted a link of current entrants, please tell me if any information is wrong.

A few people suggest that the seeding points (base on past result of BBF challenge event only) will not be an accurate assessment due to many new players from BW forum(quite a strong community in general). I'll try to make the first round some kind of small group RR. Depends on number of players I'll try to design a way where seeding has relatively little effect and everyone's chance is about the same.

I am not opposed to having a seeding committee for new players.

While BW certainly has many strong players that participate, it doesn't necessarily mean that someone that signs up for the Challenges should be seeding points.

Besides playing for fun, most people also like to play bridge to win

There are about 29 hours left before the registration end. Although unlikely to happen let's try to keep # of participants less or equal to 64 (that means still 8 spots) so we don't need another round or some weird way to remove more than 1/2 participants per round.

Newcomers - PLEASE ORIENT YOURSELF WITH THE RULES OF THE EVENT.

Specifically - checking forums every day or two for assignments, showing up for matches and the future penalties for non-compliance. In the past, we have had some no-shows which create uneven results.

In other words, its a pain in the ass for the moderators to chase people down to finish matches.

It looks like there are a lot of new people signing up. Frank - if you need help keeping people on task, let me know.

To simplify this a little bit, I'll set the format to KO from the first round (We already have 60 entrants, close to 64 which makes KO ideal format).

I'll need a little help on entering the score of the first few rounds.

NP. IM me the Box account info if I need it.

BTW, any reason why we don't use google sheets?
