This is just north of Indian Trail, in Aurora, east of Lake Street, west of Farnsworth.

Club Ladder

We are starting a ladder system at the club.  The regular attenders with a USCF rating are ranked below according to their rating and other regular attenders are listed below them without a rung.  Anyone on this list only has to show up and challenge someone to join the ladder system.

The way this will work is that anyone who wishes to participate in the ladder system may challenge anyone on a higher rung.  If the challenger wins, they will claim the rung of the person they challenged, with a maximum of moving up two rungs, and everyone in between will move down one rung in order to make way.  There is no harm to the challenger in losing the game.

Any participants who does not attend for 4 consecutive weeks will move down 1 rung per week at that point.  So if "Joe" is #1 and does not attend a club meeting for 4 weeks, he will move down to #2.  If he does not attend the fifth week, he will move down to #3, etc.

All ladder games will be G/60 unless both participants agree to a different time control. 

Current ladder rankings:

  1. Jim O.
  2. Mike F.
  3. Bill F.
  4. Jim K.
  5. Kelebrant
  6. Kevin
  7. Al
  8. Jason
  9. Mark
