Decks of cards:
For the following disciplines
– speed cards
– 10 minutes cards
each competitor can bring the card he/she usually uses when training.
Cards should be delivered on Friday and should be marked so that the referees could easily understand:
1) which is the deck they will use for the speed cards discipline, first try.
2) which is the deck they will use for the speed cards discipline, second try.
3) which is the ordered deck they will use to recreate the deck they have memorized at the first try of the “speed cards” discipline.
4) which is the ordered deck of cards they will use to recreate the deck they have memorized at the second try of the “speed cards” discipline.
5) which are the decks of cards they will use for the 10 minutes cards discipline.
Competitors can sleep where they prefer to.
Being that Milan is a city visited by a lot of tourists, hotel prices are quite high, so we suggest that you book your room as soon as possible.
We recommend booking nearby hotels not far from the venue where the event will take place:
Hotel Nuovo Marghera -> go to the website
Hotel Wagner -> go to the website
Hotel Fiorella -> go to the website
Hotel Metrò -> go to the website
We definitely also suggest you to stay at walking distance with respect to where the championship will be held. This will avoid worries that could penalise the athletes’ mental status, and will also avoid delays. In this regard, please remember that competitors that won’t be present at the beginning of the competition will remain outside the room until the starting of the following discipline.
IMPORTANT: put always as object of the email ITALIAN MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIP
