    Hi Garvin,

    I heard a rumor said this tournament was cancelled. Is that truth?

    A few notes about this event:

    This tournament has a fide rated section.

    It should be noted that for all sections the one hour rule applies..that is, if a player is 1 hour late he/she will get a forfeit loss.

    We will be sticking to the schedule on our poster as much as possible. Sometimes a round will start after the time, but we will not be making any of the round start times earlier than the schedule.

    Due to a confusing error in our poster/original text we are extending the deadlines by 1 day. So the deadline for pre registration is Thursday Aug 23 and the Titled player discount deadline is Wednesday Aug 22.

    Basically the days of the week and the dates did not match..oops ;-)

    Hi I'd just like to remind everyone to park on the gravel parking lot. The small part that's paved is supposed to be for emergency vehicles. Thanks!

    I'd like to remind everyone that our playing hall is air conditioned and fans are blowing from above. Last year, I definitely got a few comments about how cool it was. So bring a jacket or a sweater just in case.
