I'll actually be able to attend this month's meetup in my feeble attempt to include OTB in my chess diet. If you're in town on March 15th, stop on by. Looks like Glenn is on the list but not attending. And I'm not sure if Donnie knows about this meetup or not.
On a related note, I just saw on the TCA blog that the 2010 US Class Championships will be in Houston October 1-3. I'm seriously considering signing up.
Perhaps those of you who have gone to one of these tournaments can answer me a few questions about this tournament. On the site it says "3-Day Schedule: Registration Fri (10/1) 5-7pm. Rds. Fri 8pm, Sat 1pm & 6:30pm, Sun 9:30am & 2:30pm. 2-Day Schedule: Registration Sat (10/2) 8-9am. Rds. Sat 10am, 1pm (merges with 3-Day Schedule) & 6:30pm, Sun 9:30am & 2:30pm. Byes for all rounds, must commit before end of Rd 2." So if I were to sign up for the 3-day schedule, I would play 5 rounds? And when it says "byes for all rounds", what does that mean? I wouldn't be able to play Sunday, but I'd be able to play Friday and Saturday. So could I use byes for the two rounds on Sunday? And one last question ... could I replace a Sunday round with a Saturday morning round? Maybe I'll just email the organizer.
