April 30 - "Slow Blitz" event in 2 sections (Game 8 + 3 seconds); Open & Reserve

this Thursday (April 30) we are once again having a "SLOW BLITZ" event, this time in TWO Sections.  We start promptly at 7:00 pm Thursday night.


Time control is 8+3 (8 minutes, with 3-second increment), with 6 rounds.  The event should take roughly two hours (7:00-9:00 pm).


With the two sections, there are no restrictions.  The idea is that players with USCF ratings <=1600 play in the Reserve Section, while anyone can join the Open Section.
