INVITATION for Thailand Open 2013
Sun, sea, beach, nature, culture, friendly people, nice food, nice nightlife, draughts, … is there a better combination? Playing draughts in the morning, swimming in the sea or sitting on an elephant in the afternoon. In the evening, if you like, there are many open bars.
In May 2013 there will be an international draughts tournament in Jomtien, a nice tourist village just at the beach. Nine rounds in nine days according to the Swiss System and the rules of the FMJD. We will play eight games in the morning and one game in the afternoon. There will be enough time to take part on (of course fully voluntary) excursions, or to play rapid (‘blitz’) games, or to play a small tournament ‘Thai draughts’ with the locals. The entrance fee of the participation is 55 euro. If you want to stay in the same hotel as the tournament, the costs are app. 167 euro for 9 nights with breakfast, based on a shared room. The transfer Bangkok-Jomtien is about 8 euro per person with the minibus. Excursions are, of course, not included in the price. We recommend you to spend more days in the nice country of Thailand.
