Activities Schedule

We will be starting the festivities straight from the get-go with a Members-Only Bus ride on Thursday morning, September 9 from Vienna to Bratislava.

Thursday’s Community Evening will follow as well, consisting of a full night of events for our community members from 6-11 p.m., highlighted by board game and video game competitions, and of course, a fully-stocked bar. Friday night hosts the Pokercode Quiz Night, much the same as we are already used to each Friday within our community. Of course, this will also be the busiest day of the Main Event, with two starting flights taking place Friday.

The Players Party is on Saturday evening at 8 p.m. at the Rooftop by Regal, a short five-minute walk from the casino, with Community Football Day on Sunday to wrap up the festivities.
