On August 12th, the Colorado Springs Chess Club held its 2nd Tuesday of the month event:  Quads.  However, the players chose to change the time control from G30 to G24 after a suggestion from Earle Wikle.  I survived all my games to claim the 1st place tour points.

Tomorrow:  Quick Swiss (G20d3, 3SS, free, USCF-rated)

The USCF sent me this reminder:
