This Thursday (10 March 2011) the Southwest Chess Club presents “Wind Blowing, Storms-a-roaring, Marching into Spring Swiss” (see below for details). We plan to start promptly at 7:00 p.m. Registration is 6:20-6:50 p.m. I plan to close registration at 6:50. If you arrive after first-round pairings are prepared, you will have to take a 1/2-point bye in the first round.
However, if you want to play but anticipate being a few minutes late, please e-mail me or Tom Fogec or call me or Tom prior to 4:00 p.m. on March 10, so I can include you in the pairings. If you need a first round bye please let me know as soon as possible and you can have one. Thanks. Hope to see everybody on Thursday. Robin
