Due to a Swim meet on Saturday 5/6, parking in the lot will be limited. There will be parking across the street at the Tri-Valley Church of Christ, on the street, and at Jackson Avenue Elementary School behind the LARPD.
The East Ave parking has been reserved for the Chess Tournament which is about 120 parking places. To accommodate additional parking the recreation center has secured the church parking lot across the street. We will position parking signs at the entrance of the church parking lot.
Any player can be dropped off at the center and then park across the street. Please use crosswalks to safely cross the street.
Address of the additional parking space: 4481 East Ave, Livermore, CA 94550.
Any rated players who are accidentally signed up for the unrated section will be automatically moved into the appropriate category.
All boards and chess sets will be provided by the tournament organizers. However, it is advised that your child bring his/her own chess clock if they own one.
Monroi and Plycount devices will be allowed and will NOT have to be checked in. Anyone using eNotate (on a Dell or Windows Mobile) WILL have to check-in with Tom Langland even though it is also USCF approved. He may not approve the use of the device to some players. Anything (clock or notation software) that runs on a phone will definitely NOT be allowed.
The Simul will be held at the BAC Chess Center in San Jose (2050 Concourse Drive #42, San Jose, CA 95131) Friday evening.
The Blitz Tournament and Puzzle Competition will be held at the event center Saturday evening.
