Ratings/Ranking must be reset. It is absurd if I want to get a reasonable ELO match up I would have to play a 1k rated player on there alt who is rated 900 at best.

Its been many years since I was there, but I believe that hotel has an excellent gym.  I used to sometimes make the drive down from Leeds when I was there on business and had to stay the weekend.

 

And for fans of snooker, you can make a side trip over to the Crucible Theatre, though it would be to take in a performance instead of snooker at that time of year.  But there are (were) several pool halls in the city if you want to partake in a match or two.

 

There are several small towns within an hour of Sheffield that are worth visiting - and it used to be that there were public busses that went to places like Chesterfield, Castleton (caves) or Doncaster (which has a racetrack).  IF you like hiking the Peak District national park is nice. If you like cricket make the hour or so drive up to Leeds to Headingley Cricket grounds.  If they have one of those 20/20 or whatever it is now its an enjoyable evening.

 

There is a LOT to see within a few hours of Sheffield - especially for the younger guys that would like to get a bike and cycle around.  For the old folks a rental car accesses much of the same scenery :)

 

Hope those that go enjoy themselves!

Ace_Rimmer or other organisers, please keep us updated!

I would like to know this too. Also what game(s) will be played thursday. I expect either barrage, duel and/or Ultimate lightning…

I received an email now from Jonathan (he is in the organisation too).

 

They are busy with a nice invitation by e-mail with all the details. He is sure there will be a barrage WC at thursday. Furthermore he told me that the schedule of play will be very similar to the schedule of last year in Naarden (and many years before there were similar schedules). So I think we can expect 5 classic rounds on Friday and 5 on Saturday making a 10 round WC and country team (+ open tournament) on sunday but to be sure we have to wait for the official briefing. 

 

Bookings at the location can already be done by the link Ace_Rimmer posted above, here again: https://www.guaranteedevents.com/stratego-worlds-2019.

Thanks, all of the above is correct (never knew your username was Don_Homer). 

 

We're planning for Barrage on Thursday, 5 rounds on Friday, 5 rounds on Saturday, and then the country team/Open tournament on the Sunday. The entry fees will be comparable to last year (likely the same, but in £ not €). Not yet confirmed.

 

I don't think it's mentioned elsewhere on this thread, but if you book accommodation at https://www.guarante...ego-worlds-2019 then a hot buffet breakfast is included for free.

 

Jonathan
