Come on out and join us for the 2011 Global Concepts Fall Chess Festival! We are excited to announce the addition of a new U1600 adult section for adults looking to play and scholastic players looking to challenge their game! More details on this newly added section are included below.

There are three scholastic sections to choose from. Unrated, U700 and U1400. 4ss rounds, G/30. The U700 and U1400 sections are USCF rated. Entry fee for scholastic sections is $5.00.

Our new U1600 adult section has no entrance fee. This section will NOT BE RATED by the USCF and will be open to all rated USCF and non-rated players who wish to play friendly games with other adults. Future events in this section (U1600) will be rated depending on the level of interest and participation. Game time for all sections will be G/30, but the new U1600 section will have a delay of 5 sec. added. If you're intending to play in the new U1600 section, please confirm your intended attendance by posting in the comments section below.

Medals will be rewarded to top five in the Urated, U700, U1400 scholastic sections. The U1600 will have certificates for the Top Three.

We're looking forward to seeing you there and thank you in advance for your support and participation!
