Well wishes and BLITZ TOURNEY!!

...please enjoy this special time of year, and be safe.  I hope to see everyone at ANCC on this upcoming Tuesday, the 27th!

If we get a sufficient number of people willing to participate, I would like to have (simultaneously during regular club games/activities of course) a 5 min. Blitz tourney.  I still have the two small trophy left from this summers ill-fated tourney.  So, come on down and lets have an informal, no fee, Blitz tourney!!! 

We will start the first rounds at 7:30 pm.  I hope to have it be a round robin format.  However, if we do get too many people (that would be a great problem to have!), we will go to a swiss style tourney.  I do want each 'round' to be the best of 3 games.  I will decide if to allow ties (1.5pts/1.5pts) or not on site.  As mentioned before this summer for this tourney, we could also option it to be where black gets a little extra time, but a 'draw' is a win for white. 

Hope to see you all there, and talk of the wonderful celebrations from the previous week.

Darin, for the ANCC.
