Website updated with info for the next season from the Executive Director! -Kyle


Message from the Executive Director:

A reminder for all teams that our Summer Season is nigh! Yes, this includes would be new teams- 4 boards for Summer, EF $32.00 Please be aware our Open is in fact Open, though most ( but assuredly not all!) team with average rating <2100 choose to play in Amateur. Per previous message, teams should send their team information- namely which section and team averating for first 4 boards- to me by June1. No change in player eligibilty, so if you are not on a team at the start, you can join a team as the season progresses... with that exception- per ByLaws- that a player rated above 2100 can only play in the Open. Best wishes to all, thanks! - Andrew Rea
