Friends,

Richard WANG Zhen has just shared a treat with us here in Asia-Pacific: He is planning a tournament in his hometown next spring. Attaching a draft of his announcement. Will get a PDF up as soon as one is available.

Richard is one of the kindest souls I've ever met. I know he'll make a fantastic host for the event. Please give him your encouragement and support.

Cheers!

Looks like about a 5 hour flight and a non-stop from Singapore is around $560 SGD. Cheaper options for as low as $300 exist if you can accept a layover. Should be doable...food will be excellent I suspect.

Glad that ASL tournaments become more and more common in that part of the world. I would really be there but from Europe it's a little too far...
One thing I notice is that the schedule appears very optimistic with four scenarios zipped in 16 hours of play. Or scenarios are very small and short (not ideal), or TDs must be ready to judge and assign the games not ended by the time scheduled (even worst). May be the schedule is not so strict as written, but - if this is true - it should be highlighted. Anyway good luck!!!

Zhen. I just spoke with my wife (she is Chinese and is from Jiangxi). I will attend.
I hope that I can meet other members from Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and perhaps Japan at this tournament.
This, for me is a no-brainer. My in-laws--who I love dearly are getting on in life and they both will accompany me and the wife to this tourney. We will then journey to western China from here.
For me, the timing is just perfect.
I plan on arriving in Chengdu two days prior. This will allow me to meet and do some open gaming with any early arrival. I have been to China more times than I can count, but I have not yet been to Szechuan.
I love spicy food--la-de!
Meant to be.
Please send me a pm with the details.
T-Shirts being made for this?

A GPS on the phone should be able to find this address without mishap.
My experiences in China with Taxi drivers has been a LOT better than with European Taxis who assume we want a guided tour of their city! Taxi drivers in China will actually race like hell to get you quickly to your destination. A bit nerve wracking but you somehow arrive in one piece!
