This tournament will be limited to the first 25 players. The location is in the Airport Business Center off of Highway 68. It will be a 3 r ss with a time control of G/90;d5 (both players each have 90 minutes and both get a 5 second delay before each move). Entry fee will be $25 if pre-registered by September 21st by 11:59pm. $30 on site if not pre-registered. Masters (USCF 2200+) receive FREE ENTRY. $25 deducted from prize winnings. Round times will be 10am, 2pm, and 5pm. Limit one 1/2 point Bye, per player for any round. Must request Bye before start of Round 1. All players will be given a full hour lunch break! Both sections will be split into two rooms for privacy if we exceed 20 players. There will be a skittles room down the hall for players to analyze games after each round. There will be coffee, tea and juice as well as snacks on site for purchase. Restaurants are located within a 5-10 minute drive. If you wish to pre-register, please email me at jwlawso2@gmail.com with your name, USCF ID, if you are requesting a Bye and for which round, and section you are playing. Parking is extremely convenient, right in front of building, with adequate parking spaces. Hope to have all of your support!

NM Emmanuel Carter is on board to play!! :)

With the Asheboro Open being canceled this weekend, as well as many other events, chess players will need to get their "chess fix". Why not come out and play in the S.A.C.O and get 3 solid rounds of G/90;d5 action and who knows, take home a nice chunk of change for your hard work!?

Just a reminder, pre-registration will close on Friday, September 21st at 11:59pm. You can register by this time to get your $25 entry fee by simply emailing me your name, USCF ID, if you request a Bye and for which round, section, and how you intend to pay (cash or check at site). Registration after this period will be on site only from 9-9:45am Saturday, September 22nd, and will be $30. Cash or check only at site, no credit cards.

Hope to see a lot of players participate in this first event!

Update: We have been granted to have 30 players instead of the previously advertised 25! If the turnout is greater than 20, both sections will be split into two rooms, for more privacy and space. If you wish to play in this event, please send me an email before 11:59pm on Friday September 21st to receive the discounted entry fee. Any entries after this point and on site will be $30 cash or check only.
