Frequently Asked Questions

General

Have I come to the right place to see questions posed using the Contact Us form or Facebook regarding information that the organizers stupidly failed to provide elsewhere?

Yes

Is there somewhere that I can download a poster advertising the tournament?

Yes you can! Follow this link to download a compressed PDF version of the tournament poster.

Are you able to process partner requests?

We will do our best to pair up and meet all requests that players make where they do not have a partner.  Of course, sometimes there are not enough partners to go around, so there is no guarantee.  Where possible we try to match partners by similar ability. Partner requests will be filled after the March 21st deadline or whenever registration is cut off due to the 350 player limit.  Players can always go back into their entry and add partners that they have arranged up to the close of registration.

Social

Is there a possibility to only purchase a dinner ticket for the Closing Banquet on Saturday, April 28?

Yes, we will have individual tickets to the Wednesday Social and the Saturday Banquet. They will not be available on-line, but will need to be purchased at the event. The price of the individual tickets have not been set yet.

Travel

Will there be transportation to the hotel from the the airport?

Sorry no, the hotel does not have a shuttle service to or from the airport. There is a rapid transit option that leaves from the airport and has a stop within three blocks of the hotel (YVR-Airport Station to Broadway-City Hall Station). Please see the TransLink / Canada Line site for more details. Taxis are also available; the hotel has advised that the standard rate is $30 though this may vary dependent on number of passengers and items of luggage.
