Next Tuesday Meeting!

Hello everyone!

Thank you to all for coming out this past Tuesday and enjoying some chess!!  A special thank you to the new members that attended for the first time!  It appeared you enjoyed the games, and I hope to see you again next week, and in the weeks to follow!

We will be meeting again this upcoming Tuesday.  Also, concurrently there will be a CICL match between our (and our partner players from Molex) competitive team versus a team called the 'Pawns'.  Yes, regular ANCC club game play can & will happen!!  It just so happens, that there will be other games going on at the same time that are vying for a 'win' in our match versus the Pawns.

This is a fantastic opportunity for non-competing ANCC club players to observe a CICL game(s) AND play your own ANCC club games as well.  Naturally, due to the competitive nature of the match and of the CICL league, a quiet environment from all of those in attendance will be required and maintained. 

For those not familiar with CICL game time controls and rules, here is a short run down:
          Time controls:  Stage 1;   45 moves in 90 minutes (each player)
                                  Stage 2; (repeating if necessary), 30 moves in 60 minutes (each player)
                                   USCF rules governing other regulations.
Thus, a game can go on indefinitely, if you are able to make the required number of moves in your time control.  There are 6 'scored' (that count toward the score for the win/loss) boards, and any number of boards for extra play; these games are CICL rated, just not counted toward the teams points for a win or loss.  Games typically last a couple of hours, and a couple of games up to 3 hours.  Not as often,  but possible, some games extend into the second time control putting the game past 3 hours. 

The CICL match is slated to start between 7:30-7:45 pm. 

I hope to see a good crow of ANCC players playing regular club games, AND those wishing to observe our team in action against the Pawns!!

Darin for the ANCC
