Tournament Suggestions

NAP finals:

The finals for the open flight were not setup very well.  There were 16 tables and instead of running a web movement the first session and some sort of scrambled movement the second, the field was divided in two 8 table fields resulting in too few boards and an inadequate mixing of the field.  This is one of the two premier events in our district each year and we should not settle for an inferior movement.  I suggest that the best movement for each possible number of pairs be specified ahead of time, with no possibility of the director changing it.  I don’t personally know what movements are available, but there were clearly better ones available for 16 tables.
