Hi Niraj,
All the puzzles in the competition booklets will have the instructions with them, they won't have a copy of the examples though. If you're happy with just the instruction then you won't need a copy of the instruction file, but if you do want a copy of the example you'll need to bring a printed copy with you.

I realise that I haven't made it clear about what you will be able to have with you.
Phones must be switched off/on silent and you will not be able to use those during rounds.
Solutions may be written in pen, pencil etc. - as long as we can read them to mark them.
Devices such as calculators are not permitted.
You may bring/use pens, pencils, erasers, scissors etc.
You may also write notes that may help, for example, by translating an instruction if English is not your first language or some pointers that you may have identified from the examples.
Refreshments will be provided by the hotel but you are also welcome to bring your own, please remember though no rustling of wrappers etc. during rounds and make sure drinks can't be spilt.
This list may not be exhaustive, but should give an idea.

The 2019 UKPA Open Sudoku and Puzzle Tournaments were successfully held over the weekend.

Congratulations go to everyone who took part, whether they were in the awards or not.
Thanks again go to all the wonderful puzzle creators and test solvers from around the world without whom we wouldn’t be able to put on this event.

The overall Sudoku winner, successfully defending his title from last year, was Jan Zverina from Czech Republic who managed to solve all but 1 Sudoku in the whole event – amazing. Second and third places went to David McNeill and Tom Collyer respectively with just a 9 point difference between their scores. The prize for the best newcomer went to Niraj Alok.

The overall Puzzle winner was Michael Mosshammer from Austria who was attending the event for the first time, with Neil Zussman in second place with Tom Collyer in third just 31 points behind Neil. The prize for the best newcomer went to Florence Cappleman-Lynes.
