ETC First Round Draw Times

#1 by Mike Newman , Mon Jul 09, 2018 10:14 pm

Hello fellow captains

I have been told the proposed plan is to do etc first round draw late Thursday night.

I have asked if we can move this (preferably to week before event or so) - because I for one donít wish for my eating and drinking an catching up with people I havenít seen in a year to be interrupted by having to go to pairings and then everyone separate into little groups to pour over secret iPads.

I canít see how any team will benefit more than any other from doing the first round draw the week before (as I think they were last year, correct me if wrong)

I have been told that Fred will only entertain this idea if I get the support of 9 other captains - and I suggest we move the first round draw seven days earlier (to Thursday 26th July)

If you also would like to enjoy your Thursday night in Croatia then please can you message in support. Thanks

And that brings us to the required 10, so hopefully we will receive a chairman update soon

For the record I have also had messages of support from; Denmark, Germany, Aus, Wales, Swiss, mexico and Czech so far - just getting them to post on the forum is like herding cats. I donít pity the chairman in their struggles

HI Guys,

Thank you for letting us know your thoughts.

We technically need to call a vote however given the amount of captains already signed up and the numbers typically voting in any event it should be an auto win.

We will get back to you tonight - in the interim please continue to post yes if you support the proposal put forward by Mike Newman.

Why don't you guys vote on having this a permanent inclusion for years to come, doing the round 1 draw after list submission and correction? We from the 40K side have found this helps add another dimension to the tournament as round 1 can be prepared minutiously.
