Too bad this tournament is on the same day as the members tournament of the Dutch Mahjong Assocaticon.

This tournament is mainly organized by RER : Red Eyes Riichi. RER is the 2nd (after TNT) parisian club, 100% dedicated to Riichi rules.
TNT & RER are 2 different clubs, the 1st one is leaded by Quentin Thomas, the 2nd one is leaded by Nicolas Poilleux.

Tri-Nitro-Tiles, Magic Mahjong Social Pung & Fleur d'Orchidée will of course help in the organisation of this tournament.

This MERS 1 tournament can host a maximum of 48 players (there is already 21 registred players).
So, if you want a seat, be quick !

Pity, on the same day the Dutch Mahjong Assocation have their annual tournament and we go to Utrecht.
Hope to get there in 2012.

Hello.
There is a mistake, the "Red Eyes Tournament" is not organized by TNT, but by "Red Eyes Riichi", a new riichi club in Paris.
