This will be a three round McMahon tournament with even games wherever possible.
There will be prizes for everyone with 2½ or 3 wins; other prizes will be at the organiser's discretion. Time limits will be 60 minutes each + overtime of 30 stones in 5 minutes.
For those who finish any of their main tournament games early, there will be a secondary, 13x13 handicap tournament with a prize. There will also be the usual quizzes and puzzles.
In general we would recommend bringing a packed lunch or you can purchase things from the Morrisons supermarket next door. There is a pub about 10 minutes walk away, but it does not serve meals at Sunday lunchtime.
At junction 10 on the M4 take the A329(M) towards Reading. Take the first exit and follow signs to Winnersh (not Winnersh Triangle). Turn right at the first roundabout with lights and left at the second with lights. At the third, larger, complex roundabout, again with traffic lights, turn left following the signs for Wokingham and Winnersh A329. Keep straight on on this road for some time (straight on at all the traffic lights). After about 2.5 miles turn right at a large roundabout signposted to Woosehill and Supermarket. The Community Centre is first left, but the car park at its rear is very small, so it may be best to take the second on the left into the Morrisons supermarket, and park in the car park away from the shop entrance. After parking, walk back to the left past Morrisons and down the steps to get to Woosehill Community Centre.
From Bracknell take the A329 towards Wokingham and Reading. When the dual-carriageway is about to turn into the A329(M) Motorway turn off following the signs to Wokingham A329. Turn left at the junction roundabout and travel into Wokingham. After about 1 mile the road bends left and you enter the one-way system in Wokingham town centre. Move to the right hand lane and follow the signs for Reading A329. After emerging from the short one-way system keep straight on following signs for Reading and Winnersh A329. About 1 mile out of Wokingham town centre turn left at a large roundabout signposted to Woosehill and Supermarket. The Community Centre is first left, but the car park at its rear is very small, so it may be best to take the second on the left into the Morrisons supermarket, and park in the car park away from the shop entrance. After parking, walk back to the left past Morrisons and down the steps to get to Woosehill Community Centre.
