Trophies will be given to each quad winner.  In case of a tie, there may be a blitz playoff to determine first place in the upper sections.  Players with the same record may get a small trophy or medal depending on the tournament.


Please consider donating to our club.  We help all families with chess tournament expenses.  These discounts can only occur though generous donations of our parents.  Last year $780 in donations helped six students.
