2150+ female player needed for WIM round robin in France Dec 26th-30th

Post by LawrenceCooper » Sun Dec 03, 2023 9:30 am

I am Benjamin MARRET.
I am organizing a round robin WIM tournament in Rouen (Normandy, France) from December 26th til December 30th.

Very recently, one of the player decided not play anymore, there are now 9 players.
I am strongly looking for a foreign female player with elo > 2150 to participate in this tournament.

Please find below the conditions we can offer and tournament details.

A/ Conditions for the 10th player

Accomodation in a 3 stars hotel individual room from 26th December to 30th December (25 min by foot from the playing venue or free shuttle by car) with breakfasts included ;
Lunches and Dinners are reimbursed up to 17,50€/meal on presentation of a receipt ;
Reimbursement of travel expenses up to 250€ on presentation of a receipt ;
Payment of a €350 (if 2150<elo<2250) €400 (if 2250<elo<2300) €450 (if elo >2300) compensation conditional on participation of all 9 rounds ;

B/ Tournament details

The venue is :

The pairings will then be communicated to you by the Tournament Arbiter, Mrs Loriane LEBRET, IA.
The Internal Regulations can be consulted here: http://www.echecs.asso.fr/FicheTournoi.aspx?Ref=60348

Please note that round 7 of the tournament will take place at the Maison Saint-Sever, 12 Rue Saint Julien, 76100 Rouen.
Indeed, La Halle aux Toiles will be hosting a concert on the afternoon of 29 December, and we've decided not to take any risks by moving the venue (the time is unchanged).
For those who wish, we can drive you there.
