VIEWPOINT TOURNAMENT
Viewpoint is an Australian-designed non-collectible card game. Extremely easy to learn but deceptively strategic in its game play, Viewpoint is rapidly becoming a favourite amongst games enthusiasts. Now you can participate in a sanctioned tournament, open to everyone - it’s free to enter!

Viewpoint is easy to learn and you can enter the tournament even if you have never played - we’ll give you a quick briefing on the rules.

WHEN: MAY 16th 10.00am - 1.00pm
WHERE: Cavendish Road State High School Assembly Hall, Cnr Holland and Cavendish Roads, Holland Park Brisbane QLD
FORMAT: Round Robin (4 players a table)
PRIZES include trophies, Viewpoint T-shirts

All un-registered players will be registered on the day. Points scored will be recorded on the Viewpoint leader board for qualification in the World Titles being held in Sydney in December 2010.

For more information on the tournament, contact Keith Done on 07 37356426 or email k.done@griffith.edu.au

Although formal registration is not required, please contact the organiser to indicate your intention to play in the Viewpoint Tournament so we can cater for numbers.

Regards,

Keith

Congratulations to Leanne Jones who won the May Viewpoint Tournament. This was her first time playing and she blitzed the seasoned opposition. Leanne is nonw ranked 15 th in Australia on the national Leader board.

Also a big congratulations to lyoung Gracie Catton who was runner up and is currently ranked 3rd nationally.

Both Leanne and Gracie will receive trophies at the next club meeting.

Alex Done is still 1st Place on the national leader board despite going down in the May event. He has received a $10 voucher at fastbreak sports from the maker of Viewpoint for reaching 5 Accolades on their reward scheme for playing the game.

You can play in the next sanctioned event at the club meeting - that will be the LXG league and there will be a tournament at the LXG Winter Retreat at 9.30am on Sunday morning (27th June). The winner will receive a trophy featuring a hologram eye and a pack of Viewpoint cards signed by the game designers!

LXG will host another open Viewpoint tournament in August as a lead in to the Gencon Oz Queensland State Finals and I am currently negotiating an introductory tournament at Fastbreak Sports - keep posted for the date!

Contact me on k.done@griffith.edu.au if you want to knaow more about participating in the Viewpoint League.

Regards,

Keith
