Steven Oldham Pending work I might have to withdraw but I will let you know in advance

Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson That's cool, as long as I know before the 30th. :-)

Adam Finlay

Adam Finlay CoVid? Where's that then? Victoria Docks?

Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck Are each person's prelims against four different people or eight different people?

Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson Eight, time permitting.

Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson Physical prizes have been purchased for this event (not huge ones, I'm not made of money) in addition to the COLIN entry discounts for 1st-3rd. :-) More info to come...

Not the best prizes in the world but they're better than nothing (and as that's what I'm charging for this event, no complaints).

Rhys Benjamin

Rhys Benjamin I've got a Zoom interview (stage one of the council candidacy process) which has been scheduled for 10:30am - 11am. Should still be able to take part, but you know what these things are like....!

Richard Huang

Richard Huang As long as I am not invited to someone else's dinner (which is strictly forbidden, even if I am in China). 9pm start for me would be...not so bad.

Bradley Horrocks

Bradley Horrocks Unfortunately I have to withdraw, I hope it's a great success!

Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson Less than 24 hours to go! A reminder that games start at 1pm tomorrow, and all games will be input using the tourney system on here for your convenience. Running standings will be available via a link I'll post tomorrow.

Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson Fun little stat: if this was the real COLIN, it'd have the highest ever number of players making their debut- even higher than the first COLIN. Not 100% sure but that might be a record for co-events in general too.

Andy SC

Andy SC Do you intend to add fixtues only for those that turn up at 1pm or for all of those that have signed up?

Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson I'll do a roll call at around 12:55 to make sure everyone who said they were going to be there is there, then adjust the draw accordingly. The games will likely start late, which will add to the COLIN 'realism'.

Andy SC

Andy SC Count me in for 1pm might be a tad late.

Knock-out stage >>

Notes from the organizer: Normally at this time of year I'd be pestering people to send me money to come to a draughty village hall in North Hykeham (and possibly a bit more money to come to a different draughty village hall in North Hykeham the following day). Naturally, thanks to CoVid (not the Jack Hurst thing), that's not happening this year. So instead, I'm doing this. :-)

On the 30th, the day that would've been COLIN XVII, I'll be hosting a virtual co-event on apterous (yes I know this has been done before, shut up). It'll be a slightly different format than the usual COLIN, in that players will be on tables of 2 instead of 3, and (allowing for time) there'll be 8 games instead of 6 (9 if you count games you host), and there'll be quarter- and semi- finals as well as a grand final.

Pros of this format: no entry fees, no early mornings, no lengthy train rides with other Apterites.

Cons: No Fox & Hounds, no free pens, no lengthy train rides with other Apterites.

Games will start at 1pm and hopefully be finished by 5pm (it shouldn't take that long to play a load of 9 rounders, right?), so if you enter the tourney, be prepared to put the afternoon aside. All fixtures will be input in the tourney system here on apterous, and I'll post a link to the running standings in the comment of each round.

There may be actual physical prizes on offer during the day. :-) As well as discounted entry to the real COLIN XVII, whenever that takes place...

Hope to see you all (your apterous avatars at least) on the 30th!
