If you are planning on playing in the ALTO (At Least Twenty-One) chess tournament (May 6-7 in Burlington), the deadline for the hotel rate at the Ramada is this Friday (April 21st). Please call 336-227-5541 to reserve at the $85 chess rate. The early entry deadline is Sunday, April 30th. This tournament offers two half-point byes.
Please enter as soon as possible if you plan on playing. From responses I can accurately guestimate that we will have 60-70 players, but the entry list only shows 22 right now. People sometimes make their decisions based on the pre-entry list, so help populate it and make this tournament a success. If you are interested in adult tournaments continuing in some format, this one needs to succeed! Enter at: http://www.carolinaschessinitiative.com
Hope to see all you over-21 types there. All the kids are going to heading to SuperNationals the following weekend, so we wish them the best of luck and hope they all represent North Carolina and their schools well!!
