15th May - 23rd May 2016
We invite you to participate in our 19th international open draughts tournament in Salou, which will be played from Sunday, May the 15th until Monday May the 23rd, 2016.
The tournament will be played in the Swiss system with 9 rounds and will count as 3 stars event for World Cup points for men as well as women
. The complete program is shown below. As all former years the tournament turns out to be a great event. After the enormous success of the last years, we are sure the participants will succeed in having a good time, because of the combination of a good holiday near to the beach (50 m), a fine hotel-accommodation and most of the time a spectacular draughts tournament in which excellent draughts players as well as the weaker ones participate. Like last year we are trying very hard to let participate the best male and female players of the world. We think this to be a great challenge for all other participants.
For the 14th year the accommodation for the tournament will be Hotel Cala Font in Salou.
The subscriptions in the last years were much more than the maximum number of 140 participants. The first 65 participants from The Netherlands and the first 60 participants from not-Netherlands have a play-guarantee. Thereafter the subscribers will be put at a waiting list. Though: subscribing as soon as possible is absolutely necessary.
The participation fee for the tournament is € 55,--. The money prices (in number and height) will depend on the number of participants. The first price will be at least € 800,--. Other prices will be paid for highest classifications, the best women, best senior (over 55 years), best junior and best combination or best game and a “surprise – price” for some of the weaker players.
Hotel price is the same as in 2015. Because the hotel opens at Friday 13th May 2016, people who want to stay in Salou before 13th May will stay in hotel Las Vegas for the same price as in hotel Cala Font.
Hotel-accommodation (full board) is available for the price of € 400,-- per person (including the tournament) and is based on a two-person room. For persons, who don’t participate in the draughts tournament, the price is € 365,--. A single room costs (for ten days) € 165,-- extra. A reduction of 5% will be given to the people, who already participated in one of the former tournaments in Salou. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included.
There will be transfers from the airport of Barcelona to Salou and the airport of Reus to Salou on Saturday May the 14th and from Salou to Barcelona and Reus on May the 24th. The price for both transfers (together) is for the airport of Barcelona € 40,-- per person and for the airport of Reus € 20,--.
