How many of you would be interested in participating in an unrated Swiss or round robin tournament at the Lion: one game per week at 60/SD with rounds beginning at 7:30pm?

I'm in. I'll be giving Becks' odds as always. Cheesy

I'm expecting more people to start attending our meetings soon, so we should set it up so that other players can join in later. Maybe we can set up a Group A and a Group B that starts later. Then the two top scores from each group play in a separate tournament. Quad format maybe with more than two groups? Then the two top from each group can qualify to play in a Club Championship tournament to take place some time in the fall and crown our first BCC Champion. Tie-breakers can be used or a rapid play (10 mins per game, no delay) play off match for any tied players in the qualification tournament. Don't know. Just throwing some ideas around.

I've put together a kind of convoluted but flexible tournament schedule leading to a club championship. See attached pdf. Let me know what you think.

Count me in, too.  I have no experience with various designs, so will leave that to others.

I'm definitely interested. I'm sorry I haven't been to club in a few weeks. Work has kept me very busy. I should be there next week.  See you all then!
