The Queen City Classic will be held on March 11, Saturday, at Paycor Stadium, One Paul Brown Stadium. The registration time is 7 am to 8 am. Our team name is the West Louisville Chess Club and the coach is obviously Coach Corbin.
Coach Corbin prefers registering folk to make sure everyone is placed in the right section. If Coach does it please send him the player's name, date of birth, physical address, Grade, school, and USCF number. Now if you do not have a USCF number, please tell Coach immediately. He will get you one (the cost is 25 dollars).
The entry fee is forty dollars. We are covering the entry fee when you sign up as part of the West Louisville Chess Club. Once you do sign up, please tell Coach. Everyone will be asked to play in a given section. Doing it Coach's way gives us a better chance for winning a team trophy.
Now what must you do to win an individual trophy? You will play 5 rounds that Saturday. It is a one-day, all day tournament. Out of the 5 rounds, you must win at a minimum 3.5 points out of five possible points. If you do less than 3.5 points the chance of you winning an individual trophy is next to none.
Now after the tournament, we will get together on March 18 at the California Community Center, the David James Chess Classic (you DO NOT have to compete), at 5 pm, where everyone on the team who scored THREE POINTS or higher will be recognized.
At the Queen City Classic clocks will be used and you will be expected to record. The time control is G/25 with a five second delay. At club meetings please make sure you are practicing with a clock!
