No. The entry deadlines are very important so we can make sure to have space for all of the players. Sometimes our tournaments fill. Also we try to do all preparation days in advance before the tournament. This involves moving chairs, sending emails to parents who are interested in visiting once, and doing pairings. After the Thursday 10pm deadline, we then start to work on the pairings. The only changes we will make to the pairings are for when children have to withdraw from an event.
We try NOT to be lenient with this policy so we can be fair to all members.
Deadlines: To enter a Friday tournament, do so using the online entry form before Thursday 10pm. For Saturday tournaments the deadline is Friday 10pm.
