The Saratoga Staunton Club’s annual meeting will be held Sunday, September 15, 2019, at 7:30 PM. The start date for the club championship will be on the agenda, but most likely either one week later or three weeks later. Combined membership/entry fee is $20 and USCF membership is required.
Notes on the tournament: For the past few years it has been a double round-robin Game/100 Delay/10 but the detailed decision will be made at the annual meeting based on the number of people who sign up to play. It is usually a relatively small tournament, run semi-informally, allowing for players to reschedule games, including when mutually convenient playing in other locations at alternate times, as needed to accommodate the players. It is a great way to play one rated game a week.
There is no need to attend the annual meeting to play in the
tournament, in the past entries have even been accepted a week or two after the tournament has started. The full details will be announced after the annual meeting and before the start of the tournament.
Other potential annual meeting topics will be the election of officers, hosting other events, fielding a team for area competitions, and creating and maintaining a web presence through our blog, website, and mailing list.
The club meets at the Saratoga Springs United Methodist Church, 175 Fifth Av. Saratoga Springs, NY. New members are welcome and
