April Swiss Starts Tonight

We already have a couple of new players signed up for the tournament tonight.  We are also trending upwards ratings-wise as a club with many of our regulars showing gains of 50-150 ratings points over the last few months.

Tournament details:  4R-SS, Game/60 with 15 sec increment preferred, one round per evening on the 6th, 13th 20th and 27th. EF: $2 (rated event--USCF membership required).

April is bringing showers of chess playing opportunites with an event this Friday, April 8 hosted by ACES. The Casis school is hosting an event by Rocks and Rooks this Saturday, April 9 including an Adult Open Section.The Laredo Open is the weekend of April 16th & 17th with two GMs and an IM already preregistered to play. And the month will be capped off with the Temple Open on April 30th. I highly recommend the Temple Event based on playing in their last tournament. The facilities were great, the players and organizers were extraordinary friendly and helpful. It's important to support local events to encourage continued opportunities for playing and I would love to see as many of our members as possible play in this event on April 30th. Mark it on your calender and make your plans now!

Details are available at the Temple Chess Club website or at Austin Chess Tournaments (both links on right). To make it even easier to register, it's my understanding that Forrest Marler will be playing in the GCC Swiss this month so you might even be able to save a stamp by preregistering with him (I'll have to check with him to see if that's possible).

Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!
