Later Start & Time Control Change For Our 3/24 Quads


RE: MARCH 24th...

Due to an event conflict (Pizza Palooza) & chair shortage at the YMCA we had to move our tournament to 1:30 and reduce its time control.

Registration is now 12:30 to 1:15 p.m.
The time control is now G/45 d5.
Rounds are 1:30, 3:25 and 5:20 p.m.

$5 Quads On May 12th

After much consideration I have decided to run $5, No-Prize Quads on May 12th.

Since I will likely be the only TD that day a no-frills event makes the most sense.
