Side Events at PACE NSC

Postby Aaron's Rod » Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:15 pm

PACE has made some changes to our policy on side events at NSC. Relevant changes are in bold.

1) PACE does not officially organize or sanction side events.
2) NSC staffers cannot volunteer PACE-provided hotel rooms for use at side events without the consent of all room occupants. The side event must conclude prior to 11 pm.
3) Team-provided buzzers are also not generally available for use at side events, since they are locked away overnight.
4) People other than core control room staff are welcome to play in side events.

Does "the side event must conclude by 11 PM" refer to all side events, or just those conducted using (any number of) PACE provided rooms?

It refers to rooms provided by PACE. We can't stop people from continuing to play events past that time in other rooms, although in the interests of the quality of the tournament and the health of our staffers, I would not recommend it.
