Next Tournament

Free scholastic unrated event!

The following is from "the old wood pusher" Garry Reynolds:
Chess Coaches/Proctors/Advisers/School Staff: Just a reminder to start herding in all your chess cats and prodigies for the upcoming 11th semi-annual scholastic chess tournament being hosted by Genesee Valley Central School on Nov. 7th. in the school cafeteria. It's just a few days away! Please submit your student list via e-mail to Garry Reynolds no later than Nov. 4th. For those attending this event for the first time please provide: Student Name (spelled correctly) Student Grade Level (Critical to be correct) School: For first time entries please list your students based upon playing strength, at least to the best of your knowledge. If any have a USCF chess rating, please provide. Those that do not have a rating I will provide one based upon my "scholastic rating" system. Generally for grades K-6th I will assign a 600 rating and for grades 7th - 12th a 1000 rating as a entry rating for the tournament. The top rated players from previous tournaments have been given a "scholastic rating" ranging between 1500 - 2000. For those players with an official USCF rating, I will convert into my corresponding "scholastic rating" range. Remember to bring $4.00 for the lunch and bring chess sets and clocks if you have them. The best entrance to the cafeteria area of Genesee Valley is located in the rear of the school near the parking garage for the buses. You will be able to enter the main entrance as well and there should be signs directing you to the cafeteria area. Please have all your troops on deck by 9:30am to sign in and pay lunch fee. Sincerely,
Garry L. Reynolds
