My new favourite thing about this tournament venue is that if you have a long enough break between rounds (as I did at lunch), you can step outside and be right the pool, so that you can nap on a deck chair.

If only we could play out there without losing equipment or getting it wet.

I asked Player A to tell Player B that Player A's player number was not X, as they had been consistently entering, but Y. Since then, Player A has been recording the player number (X+Y)/2. Baby steps.
