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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.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.
