Finnish National VtES Championship 2010

The 2nd Finnish National VtES Championship will be held on May 29th, 2010 in Tampere, Finland.

Tampere is a central Finnish town which can be located easily either through railway from Helsinki, or a connecting flight from Helsinki airport directly to Tampere airport, and either a bus or a taxi from there. The airport is roughly 30 minutes away from the center of Tampere where the event will be held. Tampere can also be easily reached from Frankfurt-Hahn, London-Stansted, Dublin and Riga airports via Ryanair. Accomodation can be had from local players and or local hostels and hotels, ranging from 30 euros a night and upwards.

The event is to be held in the "Sofia Hostel/ Sofiansali" (YWCA hostel), a place smack in the middle of Tampere, with space for 70 players, which is hopefully enough. The event will start at 11:30 AM with registration and the games will start at 12:05 PM, until coming to an end around 09:10 PM. There will be a lunchbreak of forty minutes after the first round. The venue has a full range kitchen to be used by players as well.

Cost of event is ~10€ per player, which will go towards prices and rent for the place. Prices to be announced. Read more in the announcement by the organizers in the VtES Usenet Newsgroup.
