A message from our tournament director:

Hi folks.

Assistant TD and Winnipeg ASL Club President Eldon Hemminger has secured the venue for CASLO XXII. There’s a free shuttle from the airport (which is very close), it has several good food options (Denny’s and Chop Steakhouse are connected), quite nice rooms, and the gaming room (Charleswood A/B) is spacious and well-lit.

You WILL like it.

Use Group Booking Code #432814 NOW to secure a room for $115/night, Canadian. (That’s like, $4 USD, I think. I could be wrong.)

The main CASLO XXII tournament will start at noon on Friday (May 18) and be finished by 3 pm Sunday (May 20).

There will be five (5) rounds in this AREA-seeded main tournament (2 Friday, 2 Saturday, 1 Sunday), and three (3) rounds in the single-elimination mini-tournament (2 on Saturday + 1 on Sunday). Allow another hour or so on Sunday for prizes etc.

Entry in the mini-tournament will be limited to 8 players who either:

  • can’t play Friday AND pre-registered for the mini, or
  • took a loss Friday and chose to enter (space permitting).

Players eliminated from the mini will return to the main tournament for any remaining rounds.

[ASLSK (Starter Kit) materials and opponents will be available at all times, but no formal tournament is planned.]

We award plaques to the top three (3) finishers in the main tournament, and the mini winner. Donated prizes are distributed via winners’ choice, based on order of finish.

We will launch the registration web sites soon, and the tournament information package provided there (including scenario options) will be definitive.

Thanks in advance to the aforementioned Eldon Hemminger (club prez), Ron Levreault (scenario selection), Paul Suderman (prizing and souvenirs), Josh Gilbert (motorcyclist), and Blake Ball (requisite on-site biochemist).
