PCC Annual Membership Meeting
Saturday, October 14, 2017 @ 2:00 PM
Suite 209, Wightman Building
This is the annual business meeting for the members of the PCC. Members are welcome to come, meet the Board, and get updates on Club governance issues. We will also have our annual elections for members of the Board of Directors. The main meeting is anticipated to take 1.5-2 hours, and there will be a short closed meeting of the new Board immediately afterward.
The best part? Right after the meetings…we’re going to have the PCC Blitz Championship! Check out the new format, and come join us!
2017 PCC Blitz Championship – Double Elimination format!
In honor of National Chess Day, PCC will have its 2017 PCC Blitz Championship at 6:00pm on October 14! (Yes, this is right after the annual membership meeting.)
The format will be DOUBLE ELIMINATION! Each match will be two games, one with each color, at a time control of G/3 + 2 (game in 3 minutes, with 2 seconds increment each move).
If a two-game match ends in a tie, the match goes immediately to a one-game Armageddon tiebreaker, where White will get 5 minutes, and Black will get 3.5 minutes plus draw odds. Armageddon color assignment will be made by coin flip.
Best news: since it’s double elimination, losing your first match does NOT knock you out! You’ll still have a chance to come all the way back and win the whole thing!
The top four players will receive plaques! This tournament will be limited to 16 players maximum, so sign up early!
Entry fee is $10 for non-members, $5 for PCC members, and it will be blitz rated by US Chess (excluding Armageddon games). Both PCC and US Chess memberships may be bought on site.
