Parents:  Minors and particularly children under the age of 13 are required to be under the supervision of a responsible adult for the duration of the event.  The TDs and organizers  do not count for this purpose.  Emory, the ECC, and the GCA are not responsible for unsupervised children.


Please note:    Current USCF membership required for all players. Sets and boards supplied. Please bring clocks.

Unrated players will be seeded with their last known USCF rating, if available. They may be seeded according to FIDE or other rating systems (in foreign countries) that they may have been affiliated with in the past. Online ratings are typically unreliable and will not be used for seeding purposes. If an unrated player has no previous rating, they will be registered in the U1000 section.

Info: Full refund if canceled before pairings are up for the first round.
