By the way, my plan is to take entries until 5 pm (maybe later).  Once I make the pairings I will post them here.  Late entrants will be paired if we have an even number. 

Once pairings are issued, the White player will challenge the Black player.  Do this after 6:55 pm Thursday evening.   The instructions are in this link:   Chess.com Game Challenge instructions

The time control is G60;+5, is this correct?

RobinChess69

Also, another question.  Is the person who challenges another get white all the time, or is there some place where you have to indicate who gets what color?

Robin, yes, this is G/60 (with 5-second increment).     Check out this link for instructions on how to set colors and time control.  It's a bit of detailed instructions, but reasonably clear.  Maybe try a sample "challenge" before 7 pm tonight just to get the hang of it:    Chess.com Game Challenge instructions
