August 8th-9th
Beijing, China

[I was asked to post up information for this tournament in China this summer. The deadlines are coming up soon, but I'm sure if you call as soon as possible and make arrangements, they will accept late registrations forms.

The following information is from the registration packet for the tournament. The English content was a little rough so I have tried to correct it to the best of my ability. I encourage you to double check everything over the phone yourself to make sure there aren't any mistakes. Also if anyone wants, I can scan the Chinese version of the packet too, email me if you want this - Raffi].


Welcoming Letter

Dear Sirs,
