Stoned World Chess Championship

Due to a scheduling conflict I seem to have missed my chance to play in the 'Stoned World Chess Championship'. It was being held as part of the Mardi Grass festival held in Nimbin, New South Wales. I'm not sure what the tournament rules were, but I'm pretty sure that the FIDE drug testing policy was not in effect, and that the eating at the board rule was pretty relaxed. No results from the tournament at this stage either, but I'm sure the organisers will be sending them out shortly.

I wonder if the organisers invited Canadian player Lawrence Day? He allegedly played in the 1972 Toronto Open while stoned on marijuana.
