Which Tournaments ?

  We do not need to know which week  or night you will first be showing up to play.  Whatever night it is, all you have to do is show up no later than 7:15 PM to "check in".  Anyone who is not checked in on any night will not be matched (paired) to play.

Which section to play in?

  A rating is a numerical measure of a player's strength, calculated by the United States Chess Federation (USCF) based on games the player has played against other rated players.  Ratings are used to define sections where players will all be at a comparable level of ability.   The competition gets tougher as the ratings get higher.
  If a player has a rating, they can play in  a higher section for more competition but they can not play in a lower section.  For example, a player who has a 1000 rating may play in the Open tournament.  This player may not play in the Reserve tournaments as their rating is not under 900.
If a player does not have a rating, we suggest you using the following to guide you for the first tournament:
   
Grade just completed Estimated Rating based on Grade Recommend
starting Section
   
K 150 Reserve event   Note:  Our Grade based estimation is using the formula
1st 250 Reserve event    
2nd 350 Reserve event  

(grade Just completed x 100) + 150

3rd 450 Reserve event    
4th 550 Reserve event    
5th 650 Reserve event    
6th 750 Reserve event    
7th 850 Reserve event
