During the sign up period or during the competition do remember to turn on the chat room function by clicking the tab, to view all messages or send a message yourself. You can also create an account with discord as a secondary means of communication during the championship to resolve any potential problems. This can also be done through the Oware Whatsapp group.
To avoid dissapointment on the day it is strongly adviced to take part in the weekly practice tournaments, scheduled on Saturdays from 14:30 BST (14:30 GMT+1), 'Sign Up' begins at 14:15 BST (14:15 GMT+1), so that you become familar with how the tournament room functions and how to sign up correctly to participate in championships.
On the day of the competition click the tournament tab from the ashanti room, then click on the tournament number scheduled by ows1. When you do this you will be prompted to click 'yes' or 'no' to 'Sign Up' for the championship. If you have registered to compete click 'yes'. once this is done you will enter the championship room, where you should see your username with 0.0 besides it. If you do not see 0.0 then you inadvertently clicked 'no' which makes you an observer. To remedy this, leave the championship room and re-enter making sure you click 'yes' when prompted.
