The time control for the Badger is GAME/120 minutes with a 5-second delay, with no 5-minute deduction from the clocks.

Yes, the date for the Badger Open early registration and the hotel cut-off are wrong in the Chess Life TLA, they should read 9-28, but will be pushed to 10-5 (send email entries to me at greesesr@wscachess.org).

If you are staying at the Country Springs, but haven't booked a room yet, still ask for the chess discount, you should get it. If not, let me know.
