Unless notified as an "early departure" at the start of the day, please note that players only receive their medals if they stay to the prize giving.  Where CCF coaches in the school that an "early departure" attends, we will happily arrange to get the medal to you (subject to when the trainer next attends our evnue).  We feel that the prize ceremony is just as important as the playing of the tournament, which is why we strongly believe that everyone should attend.
