Icebergs Floating on Lake Michigan Swiss January 6, 13, 20, 27, 2011

Starting this Thursday, January 6, 2011, Southwest Chess Club presents for you “Icebergs Floating on Lake Michigan Swiss” (see below for details). We plan to start promptly at 7:00 p.m. Registration is 6:20-6:50 p.m. I plan to close registration at 6:50. If you arrive after first-round pairings are prepared, you will have to take a 1/2-point bye in the first round.

However, if you want to play but anticipate being a few minutes late, please e-mail myself (robin.grochowski@quarles.com) or Tom Fogec (tfogec@wi.rr.com) or call me 414-861-2745 or Tom 414-425-6742 prior to 4:00 p.m. on January 6, so we can include you in the pairings. If you need a first round bye please let us know as soon as possible and you can have one. Thanks. Hope to see everybody on Thursday.
