In honor of the 76th anniversary of the initial publication of the classic The Hobbit, we'll be hosting the 2013 Hobbit Classic!
Usual details apply (found elsewhere on this site) with a later start time: 10am first round. Have a soccer game or wanna mow the lawn or driving from far away? No problem, take a first round bye (1/2 point) and start playing in the second round at 12:40. Either way, we'll finish up by 6:30pm.
Four rounds, Game/50 plus a generous 5 second delay.
Since many high schoolers haven't quite gotten their seasons underway, we'll also be hosting a section with similar time controls but only a $5 entry fee. No USCF membership required for this section. Non-cash prizes for these folks, but we'll come up with some thing good for the winner(s). If you or your students are interested in this unrated tournament, please drop me a line by Friday (9/20) so I can set up enough tables.
Sorry for the short notice on this, but we just became aware of the church's availability Saturday. Otherwise, it's booked until November.
