TD will assign ratings for those who are not USCF rated.

If there are late arrivals and/or odd number of players TD may start additional games with reduced time controls so next round may start on time.

We will try to accommodate not pairing family members or those that normally play each other a lot in rated games. Please advise the TD.

We will use the Official November Rating List. TD has discretion to use more current or to allow some youths who are not 1000 to play.

Reminders: (please ask if you need more details)
o QUIET especially in playing areas.
o Problem? stop clock & notify TD to help resolve.
o Touch Move
o You may only adjust pieces when it is your move (I adjust)
o Must keep score
o After less than 5 mins left on either clock, neither player needs to keep score.
o Please write down you moves after you make it so it is not thought that you are taking notes. Rule 15A.

Thank you to the Triangle Chess Center for allowing us to use the facility.
