As a present from the FQE (Fédération Québécoise des Échecs), the McGill Chess Tournament hosted tomorrow will be FQE semi-rapid rated! Since this is graciously offered by the FQE, there will be no extra charge. Memberships to the FQE will be sold at the tournament. If you wish to play and have not yet pre-registered, le me know ASAP because spots are filling up! Cheap pizza and soft drinks will be available!
If you have a rating (from anywhere), please let us know, it will help us with the organization.
Those of you who have pre-registered will receive a special email later today with a few additional details.
-the tournament will start around 9.30am (first round starts at 10.00am sharp)
-the trophies will be given out around 4.00pm.
-5$ to register at the door
-5 rounds with 20 minutes/player
-in Trottier Cafeteria (same place as our weekly meetings)
-Results will be taken into consideration when the McGill Chess Team is formed (unlike what some people seem to have understood, this does not mean that the top-four finishers will automatically be on the team. It will be a factor in the decision process.)
-FQE semi-rapid rated!
-cheap pizza and soft drinks!
Looking forward to playing some of you tomorrow!
