August Champ--Roger!

Congratulations to our August champion Roger. Nice job and a ratings increase resulting in a jump from class C to class B.

Here is the Crosstable

We had several ratings shifts by Jake, doug and Shea.  Please see the crosstable link for details.

Next week the 29th is an open week. Casual games or blitz. Not sure if I'll be there or not so very informal depending on turn-out.

Our September Swiss starts on 5th. Standard format 4/SS with time controls of Game/55 inc 10 and one round per night on the 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th. Entry fee: $2. Hope to see you then.

Dang v. Roger
May 30th -- Rather then play a 5th round. I am suggesting we play an unrated blitz  (5 minutes) tourney. Depending on turnout we should be able to play a round robin during the club time. No entry fee (free). The other option is to play a rated quick chess tourney 3-SS (Game\15) or quick chess quads depending on turnout (also free). Let me know your thoughts by email or comment below.

Dean v. Rohan
Our June Swiss will start on June 6th. One round per night on the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th at a time control of Game\55 inc 10. Entry fee: $2 USCF membership required. Hope to see you there!
