Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Just a reminder to please submit your entries to this Saturday's tournament by the end of the day tomorrow (Thursday). I plan on doing the sections and first round pairings Friday.

Entry fee is $10, and can be mailed to SF Rooks, POB 4764, SF NM, 87502, or via Paypal. If you mail a check, please also email or call, so I know you are planning on playing (505-920-0540).

Here is the list of confirmed players (I have not been to the post office this week, so again, if registering by mail, please also let me know by phone or email.)

A note about ratings. SF Rooks tournaments use the most up to date ratings found at the US Chess website, under a player's "Tournament History" page. So these ratings include all play through last weekend's Colorado Open.

Please check in between 10:00 and 10:20, so we can begin the first round at 10:30. Location is the Southside Branch of the Santa Fe Library, located at the corner of Jaguar Drive and Country Club Drive.
