off, let me say that the BG Tournament at Sea is first and foremost a BG
vacation which happens to be with people who enjoy the game of
Backgammon with tournaments onboard. The tourney atmosphere will be
relaxed and set up in such a way so that people have a great time and a
some good laughs while enjoying a fantastic vacation and maybe win some prizes
and cash to boot !
main agenda is NOT just playing Backgammon as in the major BG
tournaments worldwide. It was designed as a way to share a great vacation
at group rates with people who have Backgammon in common and who have
become friends online or in real life thru the game of Backgammon.
It's for people who want to finally meet their online BG friends and enjoy
a great vacation at the same time at a preferential rate.
other BG tournaments, there is no charge to enter the tournaments. Any
profits generated from the commissions derived from the people attending
will be given back in the form of prizes onboard the ship. There will be
prizes for individual tournaments during the week as well as a Grand Prize
of $ 1000. for the Grand Finale tourney winner. See full list of prizes
play schedule will be set up at the beginning of the week and assignments
will be posted on a designated bulletin board. Players will have time
limits in which to play assigned matches with a set tourney every day
which they can play at the time of their choice within the established
addition to cumulative match wins which count towards admission in the
Finale tourney, individual tournaments such as the following will occur:
Most pts in 3 matches win Bacardi !
Nackgammon 7 pointers
Partners: 5 pt T on Promenade deck
Beach Gammon :
Tourneys on the beach !
Madness: You lose to win !

given to everyone upon embarkation.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE
be advised that all tournaments and gift remissions will only be awarded
based on the participation of at LEAST 25 PEOPLE. The cruise departure
will take place regardless of this as I always have a scheduled group
sailing in the Fall and they are part of this departure however I need 25
people to play BG in order to have the tournaments and prizes awarded.
the event that the numbers should fall below 25 participants the cruise
vacation will still take place, but there will not be any major tournament
you belong to a Backgammon club in your city or you TD for a ladder or have many
friends online or in real life who play Backgammon and you would love to get
your group together on a cruise, you might want to apply to be a BG host
is how the program works:
request to be registered as a BG host to me by writing to email@example.com
and I will set up an account for you to track the people you refer within
on the cruise.
you can accomplish the following, under no obligation, I will give you a FREE
this cruise and you can be part of the TD process onboard !
is required of you:
need to promote the cruise to your Backgammon club or circle of friends
and relatives in order to get 16 people to form your group. This can
include wives or husbands of the Backgammon players as well. Only the
first two people in a cabin are counted towards the allotment. this means
if 3 people share a cabin only the first two will count towards the 16
required participation. So in fact all you
need are 8 people that play Backgammon to come with their friend or mate and you SAIL
space will be on a share basis with someone of the same sex traveling on
the cruise . If you are
traveling with a companion, a preferred rate will be given to that person.
reason for the host program is to have as many as possible participate in
order for the tournaments onboard to take place and to provide a real fun
event. All you need to do is get people to
know that I do not gain financially from this as I am giving a rebate on
the cruise rate and whatever commission is derived goes back as prizes. I
get more free cruises than I know what to do with in my profession so the
main reason I am doing this is that I really want a fun vacation getting
to meet my online friends in real life.
HAVE PLANNED A FUN EVENT TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO HAVE A SUPER VACATION BUT
YOUR PARTICIPATION IS WHAT WILL MAKE IT A SUCCESS !! YOUR ASSISTANCE WILL BE GREATLY
TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS !
LETS PARTY !!
