Looks like a Class B heavy tournament!
Yeah, with all them their B players, there should be like many more B prizes this time
I do not believe that the Flyer indicates what the Class prizes are, just that they will be made based on the entries. I assume that means entries per class, but I guess it might mean entries per the whole tournament. The tournament TD would have to answer that question.
Hi Greg, I noticed your latest post at our blog regarding taking email entries yet for the Badger Open. Are you still accepting email entries at the $35 rate or has that changed to $40 now ? Also, for your information, I have moved the Badger Open up to the top listing on the Southwest Chess Club Blog. We will keep it there throughout the weekend, so feel free to update whenever you can. Have a great tournament !! Tom FogecSouthwest Chess ClubHi Tom, For our friends at SWCC it's still $35. They can email me until 9:00 pm, or Jim Nickell at "James Nickell" firstname.lastname@example.org, or Ashish Vaja at "Ashish Vaja" email@example.com until Midnight. I will try to post this information to your blog before I leave for set-up at 6 pm.Thanks!Greg
