Pre-Registration for August Monthly
Tournament - starts Tuesday July 15 (Round 3)
In our continuing effort to start round 1 on time, and make it more convenient for MCC members to register and pay, the Club is
continuing a pre-registration option. Here is how it works:
- STEP 1 -- Starting on Round 3 and higher of a current month, you
may pre-register and pay for the next month's tournament. You must
pay the entry fee at the time of pre-registration.
- STEP 2 -- Relax...
- STEP 3 -- Remember! You are now signed up, and are expected to
play on Round 1 of next month. If you can't make it, you must still
call-in for a BYE as usual. For more info on BYEs, see our Bye
and Pairing FAQ.
Imagine, no more waiting in long lines. Now you have more time to
spend in the Weekly Group Lesson, play skittles, or chat with your chess
If you wish to pre-register for August, you can do so starting on
Round 3 of July which is Tuesday July 15.
The entry for August is $15 for MCC members, $20 for all others. For
