Ferndale Public Library.
Schedule: Check in before 9:10am. Concludes by noon.
Format: Five round McMahon Swiss. Game/10, 5 second delay. Unrated.
Cost: Free, just bring a white elephant gift to exchange.
Prizes: White elephants!
It's a quick chess tournament! Five rounds of McMahon Swiss format, which means no elimination, every player gets five rounds. "Quick" means everybody will use clocks, set at 10 minutes per side, with a five second delay, so all games conclude within a half hour.
"White Elephant" means the price of admission is ... you must bring a white elephant gift! And those will be the prizes! First place gets first pick, second place gets second pick, etc. McMahon pairings means there will be two divisions, so chess players K-12 of all abilities are welcome.
What's a white elephant gift? Any clean knick knack sitting in your attic, garage, kitchen or room that you no longer want, but just maybe, someone else might get a kick out of. Examples: Old mug, a toy you no longer use, hat that's now too small, pack of gum, book you've read, new spare toothbrush, stickers, funky socks, Shrek bandaids, stuffed animal, rubber pickle, bacon flavored toothpaste, fidget spinner, funky mask, Bertie Bott's Jelly Beans, deck of cards, pretty much anything, search the attic! Does not need to be wrapped.
Don't forget to pre-register! (by 10pm May 13)
