No hotel bar food is available so players would have to bring their own food. Tea and coffee and bar drinks will be available.

Although each round should last no more than 2 hours 20 minutes, by using time increments means there is no definitive end time. Please therefore note there will be a minimum of a 10 minute break following the completion of the previous round so start times may vary slightly but these will not be any earlier than those stated above.
