EIGHT is ENOUGH SWISS TEAM GAME Sunday, June 2

EIGHT is ENOUGH – SWISS TEAM GAME

Please put Sunday, June 2 in your calendar. The game will start at 1 p.m. but come a few minutes early to chat. This is a TEAM game so come dressed as a TEAM. Come in a: TEAM t-shirt, TEAM hat, TEAM colour, TEAM scarf, TEAM flag, TEAM motif,

or even a TEAM WIG!

In an Eight is Enough TEAM game, teams are relatively balanced since no team can contain more than two advanced players. Start thinking about your team now. You will need four intermediate players or two rookies and two advanced players or some similar combination to make up your team. In Eight is Enough each player is assigned a point value based on that player's total masterpoints. Each team consists of four players whose total point value does not exceed 8.

•Flight C players with 0 - 499 masterpoints = 1 point

• Flight B players with 500 - 1499 masterpoints = 2 points

• Flight A players with 1500+ masterpoints = 3 points

This means that if two Flight A players want to play together, they will play with two Flight C players: 3 plus 3 plus 1 plus 1 equals 8. A team may have a value of less than 8 but may not exceed 8.

Sign up at the club. Full team sign-ups are strongly encouraged. Those who sign up as a pair will be matched with other pairs if possible.

If you have questions about your team composition or to get assistance in forming your team, contact Tom Jolliffe at tom.jolliffe@rogers.com or 519-639-2206.

OUR VOLUNTEERS
