Day 6: 
January 26, 2013   Summit School of Chess #1

From: csca-scholastic-chess@comcast.net
Subject: January 26th - Summit School of Chess Tournament

To all,

 

Jesse Cohen with Summit School of Chess is beginning to organize a new set of tournaments. The first tournament will be held on January 26th. Attached is the registration form.

 

For our USCF members, this tournament will be different in that divisions will be divided by rating and not by grade allowing for more competitive games throughout the entire tournament.

 

As well, last year during our State tournament several of our higher rated players asked if there was any way a scholastic tournament could be put together with an OPEN section that offered a cash prize rather than trophies.

 

Jesse has agreed to try this out for the tournament on the 26th.

 

Here are the divisions for this upcoming tournament:

 

Divisions:  USCF Players Rated: U1000, U1400, OPEN /  For the Non-USCF Players: Grades: K-5, 6-12

 

PRIZES: Rated OPEN Division only: 1st place - $50, 2nd  place - $30

Trophies to Top Three finishers in all other divisions

 

If you would, please pass this information along to your scholastic players.

 

Thank you,

 

Tom Nelson
