Hotel & Hospitality
Rules of HospitalityWe welcome you to the 49th Edition of the Coffee Bowl - Copa del Café at the Costa Rica Country Club in Escazú, Costa Rica. Hotel hospitality commences Sunday night December 30, 2012 for Main Draw players and official coaches nominated by national federations in a timely manner and who accompany their national teams, with a maximum of 2 coaches per federation, one coach for boys and one coach for girls. Players and coaches participating in the Qualifying Tournament must pay their own lodging.
Hospitality will end the day after the player is eliminated. Hospitality includes lodging and meals (breakfast at the hotel and lunch and dinner at the Costa Rica Country Club). Players and coaches must pay their own bar, telephone, laundry, and other hotel charges and should establish their own credit for these additional hotel services.
Players will be lodged in double or triple occupancy, while official coaches may be lodged in a single room. Players wishing to occupy a single room may do so if he/she pays 50% of the lodging bill but only for the standard room rate.
In order for the Organizing Committee to pay for the hotel, all players (or coaches of national teams) must register with the Committee at the Club by the end of the first day of play indicating the room number in the hotel and the names of roommates. The Organizing Committee contacts for this are Anabel Sequeira and Patricia Jiménez.
