Grand Prix Aborted Due To Power Outage, Re-Scheduled For June 25th


Today's Westfield Grand Prix was aborted midway through the 1st round, due to a power outage & the resulting YMCA evacuation.

With the event's abrupt conclusion, we could not issue on-site refunds. Players desiring one should email their pertinent data to westfieldchessclub@gmail.com. If you do not contact us we will hold your entry fee as credit toward future events.

All reported results will be submitted for rating later today, as will 3 adjudicated games in the U1200 Section. Players in the Open & U1800 Sections may submit games for possible adjudication to westfieldchessclub@gmail.com.

The Grand Prix has been re-scheduled for Sunday, June 25th. If we can beat the USCF's publication deadline, its ad will appear in Chess Life's May & June issues.

Thank you all for understanding that the circumstances were beyond our control.

Addendum 3/24 at 2:08 p.m. -  The credit may be used for any Westfield Chess Club tournament except the Club Championship in December.

NEW URL FOR OUR WEB SITE!


The new URL for our web site is www.westfieldchessclub.org

westfieldchessclub.com went offline this morning.

The club was no longer able to update there & refused to pay domain ransom to the notorious Brandon Grey Internet Services which apparently scammed us prior to 2015.

We only learned of this 6 days ago and are sorry for whatever inconvenience has resulted.

The USCF site is down at the moment, anyway.
