Postings will be at www.parlitournament.com <strong>**NOTE: In the event of conflict, the resolution AS ANNOUNCED BY THE TD takes precedence over anything posted electronically** </strong></p> <p> </p> <p>INTERNET ACCESS IS **NOT** guaranteed. There are a series of steps to get internet access via PacificNet_Guest, but it does not work with all phones. You are REQUIRED to have a backup if you are judging Parli.
