2010 Spring Standard Results for Round One

Thursday, April 01, 2010
There were a lot of requests for some added opportunities for our members to play slower, standard time control games. Tonight we began the first round of that type of event and if you want to join, it is not too late! The 2010 Spring Standard Crowd Event now has 6 registered players. 

1. McDonald - Andrews (FM) 0 - 1
2. Tanas - Campbell 1 - 0
3. Shapbell - Alataiwi 0 - 1


The next round of this event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14th around 6:30 PM. The entry is $15 for current members and $20 for non-members. 85% of the entries will be returned as prizes with one prize being paid for every 3 players registered. You have two weeks to still play your first round. Players who register after that will be given 1/2 point byes. We must get entries in pairs of 2 for a game to be possible. Here is some of the action from the first night:
