Rookies Shield

Calling all Chess Rookies - mostly junior chess at the Hamilton Chess Centre (Room G1, enter off Hill St Hamilton).

The Hamilton Chess Club is running 5 rounds in 2012 of rookies/junior chess events at the Hamilton Chess Centre from 11am to 4pm (Sundays). The chess will be fast and furious – 7 games over the day, with short time controls of 15 minutes each for all your thinking time. Cash prizes will be given as a minimum for overall 1st and 2nd, the best adult, best unrated player, and the best U18, U16, U14, U12, U10 and U8 players (players can only win one prize). Separate divisions for girls only, if there are sufficient numbers. The prize pool is 80% of entry fees after expenses.

As this is a rookies event, it will be restricted to players under 1600 NZCF rapid rating as at 01/01/2012, which still includes many players!

Entry fees will be only $10 if also entering a junior - come on you parents - take up the challenge and mix it up with your kids!

Be there from 11am (round 1 starts at 11:30am) - and there will be a 40 minute lunch break after round 3.

If you are interested in more details, then please contact us.

Please register for round 1 (4 Mar) via the web site so that we know that you are coming, and to avoid disappointment as our resources are not unlimited!
