Tournament Information

This is a 5 round event in 3 sections (over 1600; under 1600;  under 800) with games on Tuesday evenings.  The sections could change if we don't have enough players in a section. Players can play up a section if within 100 rating points of the cutoff. Don't forget!  You must keep your membership in USCF active to play.   Each Round starts at 6:45 pm and the Club opens at 6:00.  Time control is Game/90 min. with 5 second delay except for the under 800 section, which will be G30 with 5 second delay. Players in the u800 section will play two games against the same opponent each round.  Two 1/2 point byes are available. Last round byes must be requested before the start of Round 4. The entry fee is $40 and should be paid online.  Advance registration is strongly advised as there is a 68 player limit. If you have trouble registering online contact us and we can register you and have you pay the registration fee in person before Round 1 starts. Players that don't register before the day of the tournament might not get a game in Round 1. Cell phones are allowed but must be placed on vibrate. All players must be SGVCC members.   New memebers can pay Club dues ($30 per year) in person.  All prior memberships from our Sierra Madre location are still in good standing and will be honored. Prizes TBD based on entries. We meet at Altadena Community Church in Heicher Hall, located at 943 East Altadena Drive, Altadena, CA 91101 For more information contact John Wright at 626/864-5744 or at wright.john82@yahoo.com
