MCCL returns with a new and improved version of its Team Championship series and invites all 4-person teams from every school in North Alabama to participate on Saturday October 27, 2018. Save the date. All age groups will be included with the MCCL Team Cup also being awarded to the top Madison team in the middle/high school section. Because it is early in the school year, and coaches assign board orders for their team, no tournament report will be issued. So this will be like a practice or non-rated tournament, although board order will be determined using current USCF ratings.
Sections: Primary (K-3), Elementary (K-6), Open (K-12)
More details coming soon.
A USCF membership is required in order to compete in any rated tournaments. We recommend Premium Scholastic Membership for students (one year $25) or Premium Adult Membership for adults (one year $49). Please use MCCL #A6040788 when completing the "Membership Appreciation Program Credit" box.
The United States Chess Federation rules require all competitors in rated sections to record their moves as they play. All tournaments conducted by MCCL enforce all USCF rules.If you are not familiar with how to record, read these articles (part 1 and part 2) and watch this video.
