ICC 5 0 Championship in November. Open to all.

The ICC/Tomato team of managers is hosting the ICC 5 0 Championship
in November.  The 5 0 Championship will be held in three stages
(Qualifiers, Candidates, and Finals).  The first stage is open to
all ICC members.  Stage 2 and 3 are open to those who qualify from
preceding stages.  Free-trial members are invited to participate in
first stage but may not play in later stages without joining the ICC.

The first stage will consist of 12 Qualifier events (9 round 5 0 Swisses)
during the week of November 7th-13th.  These Qualifiers are open to all
ICC members and will be held on LittlePer in channel 225 (except for
Friday's events which will be held on Tomato in channel 46).  The top
three finishers in each event plus the top six series scorers (the
Qualifiers are tracked as a series) will earn invitations to the
Candidates Stage.  Alternate spots will be given to those who just miss
out on qualifying.  The schedule of Qualifiers is as follows (all times
are server time or EST.  To see server time on the ICC, type "date")

SUN (Nov. 7):  6am  12pm
MON (Nov. 8):             6pm
TUE (Nov. 9):        4pm  9pm
WED (Nov 10):             8pm
THU (Nov 11):        4pm
FRI (Nov 12):        1pm  8pm
SAT (Nov 13):  6am   2pm  9pm

Anyone can participate in the Qualifiers.  No pre-registration is
required.  To participate in a Qualifier tourney, just show up in
channel 225 shortly before the start of the event and type "tell
LittlePer join !" when the tourney is open.  For Friday's events, be
present in channel 46 and type "tell Tomato join !" when the tourney
is open.  For general information about Tomato tourneys, please read
help Tomato.

The two Candidates events will be held at 9:30am on Saturday, November
20th and 2pm on Sunday, November 21st.  Just like the Qualifier events,
they will be 9 round 5 0 swisses.  These will be only open to those who
qualified from Stage 1 and alternates for missing Candidates.  Candidates
are required to be present and available to play 15 minutes prior to the
start of the event or their spots will be forfeited to Alternates.  The
top five finishers in each Candidates earn invitations to the Finals,
which will be held 2pm on Sunday, November 28th.  All those who earn
invitations or alternates spots to Stage 2 and Stage 3 will receive
futher instructions and details via message.
