4 round Swiss tournament.
USCF regular and quick rated. Time control: Game in 30 minutes with a 5-second delay.
Saturday, August 20th, 3 pm to approximately 8 pm.
Entry fee: $30 on or before Monday 8/15, $35 on or before Friday 8/19, $40 on Saturday 8/20 (on-site registration is allowed, registration for round one closes at 2:45 pm on Saturday).
Two Sections: Open (minimum 1300 rating to play) and Under 1500.
Note: In order to play in the open section, players must have a USCF rating of at least 1300. Players rated between 1300 and 1499 can play in either section. Players under 1300 should play in the Under 1500 section. A player can still join the open section if their unpublished (live) rating is over 1300, even if their monthly rating isn't 1300 yet. The tournament director may decide to have a lower rated player join the open section to maintain an even number of players in the section.
PRIZES: Trophy for first place in each section.
We will have enough chess sets for all players, but clocks will not be provided for everyone. If you have a clock, please bring one.
This tournament is open to all players (adults and children of any level).
