Policy for In-Person Events  – Anyone eligible to be vaccinated must be fully vaccinated to enter our premises. As of Feb. 15 this includes youths 5-11, who have been eligible to be vaccinated against Covid-19 for several months. At this time masks are recommended, because of the close contact across the chess table over many hours. These policies are consistent with those of the U.S. Chess Federation, the Washington Chess Federation and guidance from the state of Washington.

Late Sign-up and Registration: You can sign up or cancel a signup for a weekend tournament or Friday night up to midnight two nights before the event by emailing jselsky3@comcast.net, as you do now. After midnight of the night before (e.g., for late signups or cancellations, late bye requests or alerts about late arrivals, etc.) please send to the tournament director kleistcf@aol.com as well. Email requests close 1 hour before scheduled start of the tournament. This gives the TD space to process arriving players, construct the pairing matrix, etc.  For most tournaments there is an in-person registration period for tournaments where there is space available. 

Monday signups no longer required: We have lifted the signup requirement for casual Mondays. Instead, you will be asked to sign IN. Look for a sign-in sheet at the club. First time attendees are asked to continue to sign up
