On the opening day we had an overwhelming interest in what you are doing. As a result the server and database got overloaded and went down, not allowing anyone to see scores. We updated the server and now all is good again and we can deal with much more traffic. The score and spirit scores can now be accessed. The player stats will be entered manually throughout the day and we hope to have it all entered by the end of Tuesday. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Lunch will be available for collection from 11:30 every day in the players’ tent. There is still food left over from today. Any food that is not collected will be sent to a nearby donkey farm (but don’t worry they have other food if you eat all yours).

For teams practicing on fields on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday, please double check for junk. Especially pieces of wood, a few centimeters under the sand. Usually leftover from the wooden walkways you see. Those are moved throughout the season and can leave pieces behind. The organization is looking for junk too. Having many extra pairs of eyes helps a lot. Thank you for your consideration.
We had to slightly adjust the field locations. Have a look: http://news.ebuc2019.org/info/field-maps (always available through the news.ebuc2019.org menu as well)
