Hoffmann Elementary will host their
2nd Annual Non-Rated Chess Tournament
from 9:00-3:00 pm, Saturday April 8th 2017

Five rounds with Swiss System pairings; 50 minute games (If players are not already using a clock, they will be put on a clock the last 10 minutes of the game, 5 minutes each with no delay. Entry fee will be $10.00 per player.  This includes 2 slices of pizza, one cookie and a drink.  See the check-in/ticket table in the cafeteria when you arrive to pay and receive your food ticket.

ALL players MUST register before.  No on-site registration is allowed.
                         
Two divisions:  Primary (K-3) and Elementary (4-5).  In order to qualify for team awards in either division, your team must consist of at least 2 players minimum.  The top four players from each team in the primary division and the top four players from each team in the elementary division will count towards the point system. Individual medals will be awarded for players winning 3 points or higher for all of their matches, that did not qualify for a trophy.  The top 3 teams will win a trophy and the top 5 individuals will win a trophy.

Check-in will be from 8:00-8:45 am.  The First round will start at 9:00 am.  All matches and the issuing of awards should be concluded by 2:30 pm.  Each player will play five matches.  Each game is worth one point for a win, .5 for a draw or stalemate, and 0 for a loss. 
Each game will last 50 minutes. Players still playing with only ten minutes remaining in the round will be placed on a clock, each player will have 5 minutes of playing time. While on the clock the player that wins by checkmate or by time default will be declared the winner.  The touch move rule will be used throughout the tournament. 

Immediate pairings for each round will occur, so all players should stay in the hallway or playground area in order to start their next match on time.  Every effort will be made to ensure no player, plays another player from the same school.  A standard Swiss System tie-breaker system will be used if necessary.

All coaches are welcome to help judge the games and stay in the playing area…All parents will be asked to stay in the waiting area (library-hallway) while their children are playing. Parents are responsible for their children while they are not playing.

Please RSVP with the names, grades and school of your players by the 6th of April (earlier if possible) so we can get a count on the number of players attending.
