As we are determining the Class Champion for this season, players must play within their class (Official Nov. published rating used). If a player's current unpublished rating would place that player within a higher section, the player will be allowed to play in that higher section on request. Requests must be before round 1 pairings. Depending on number of entries per section, sections may be combined at Chief TDs discretion.  Any player with a FIDE rating but no USCF will be placed accordingly (case by case basis).  


Entry fee:    $69 on-line by Nov. 15th. $75 on-site. Free entry to IM/GM/WIM/WGM. Entry for U1000/Unrated section $30 on-line by 11/16; $35 on-site.
