SWCC vs Waukesha Match - August 29

Southwest Chess Club versus Waukesha on August 29
at ProHealth Care Park, 2950 South Sunny Slope Road, New Berlin.
First Round game starts at 10:00 a.m.
We have about 10 players signed up so far from our Club, but Jim Coons said we need more since Waukesha already has about 15 or so.
See Jim Coons this Thursday to sign up.

Each person will play two games (G/60) against an opponent, one with the white pieces and one with the black pieces. We will be providing drinks and snacks also. Hope to have many sign up.

Will this be a rated event? And how will pairings be made?

Robin said...

We will try to pair players with similar ratings as much as possible. Probably just line up players by their ratings for each Club, top to bottom, and then start pairing them from the top going down. The last time we did this match, if both players wanted their games to be rated, we rated them. I am not sure if that is what we will do this time, but it sounds good.

Hey JB,

You Going?

JB said...

Depends if I can get off work (I work night shift). Used to play in War of the Roses (same format) and it was always fun having white & black against same opponent on same day.

Membership at the Southwest Chess Club is $10.00 per year. We meet on Thursday nights. See our website for complete details.

The first round is at 10:00 a.m., so both rounds should be over by 3:00 p.m. at the latest, given two hours per game and a small rest in between.

Hope to see a good showing from SWCC!

Since this will be outside at a park, we want to ensure good weather (even though we are under canopy). So our Information Officer, a/k/a Weatherman Allen, will give us updates on the projected weather as our match date approaches.

JB said...

Is that Ward Allen? How's Albert the Alley-Cat? (for those of us near or over 50)

Tommy Schneider would like to play.

Looks like the SWCC has about 18 players right now.

Saturday: A 20 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 72.

When will "summer" arrive ?!?!

Robin said...

Looks like the temperatures will be in the high 60s on Saturday, but it is looking like no rain. Dress appropriately for cooler weather. Should be a great day for some outdoor chess.

Sorry about the cool weather! How did the games go?
