Our last PEACE chess club (May 9, 2014) will be a USCF rated club tournament for club members only. Everyone will need to have their USCF memberships up to date in order to play (you can pay me at the door if need be) ... otherwise the tournament is free. This will be a Quad tournament where we will divide everyone into sections of four players based on their USCF ratings. The lowest-rated section will have 3 to 7 players, depending on how many players show up. Each section will play 2 or more rounds depending on available time. Time control will be G/30;d5 (30 minutes on each clock with a 5 second delay). Recording your games with chess notation is required for 4th grade and older. We will be using the new tournament software, so you'll want to bring your iPhones, iPads, etc to report your results and see the latest standings. And, please bring your clocks and sets if you have them.
