  • To add to what ashikuzzaman said, having some MC apparel (hats, shirts, pins, etc) might be a nice touch.

  • Are you planning to seel MC merchandises this October? For example chess scorebook, chess clock and chess sets with logo of MC in those? I think that will be very appealing to many.

  • Quick question: In some places it states unrated must play in the open section but in the FAQ it indicates unrated can play in the U2200 section. Can you clarify that unrated players have the choice to play in either the open or U2200?
