    I have just joined a tournament.
    I read the rules about enforced time outs, it seems sensible to keep the event moving.

    Having made a number of moves in a few days, my opponent has now gone on vacation for 36 days when it is his move next.

    Will he be timed out?
    Can you go on vacation in a tournament?
    Will this not hold the event up, or will our game be excluded from the next round?
