1. WSC/WPC Host
2. Participants Rules
4. Site Selection
5. Time and Schedule
6. People Requirements
7. Web page

Please select the topic and let us know your feedback.
Thank you very much
Thanks for providing us this document.
I’m victim of serious insomnia since sunday (even back home it seems to continue the same way 😮 ) and had many thoughts about WSC during this time.
I’ll try to make comments and propositions for the guidebook in the next days/weeks.
The guidebook already contains a reference to the Printable material (funnily enough, under the heading “FINANCING”)
In my opinion it must be stressed not only that the paper for the competition sheets must be of good quality (80 g/sm ok) but also that the print quality must be adequate. Light paper and poor print quality may be acceptable on the booklet and on the solutions, but the competitors must be able to write and erase many times on the competition sheet without the ink fading away. Laser or typographic print recommended.
Negative example: Croatia 2012.
Also: the size of the cells used in the competition paper must be adequate to write digits, candidates etc. allowing for mistakes and cancellation. I found the size of the cells for the POKER BATTLE this year on the small size. We could have done with a print on A3 sheet.
