SPECIAL ADDRESS FOR DROPOUTS:
            We receive so much email that it is difficult to keep track of important messages, such as those regarding players who have entered a tournament but will be unable to attend.  To simplify this task, we have set up a special email address for mail regarding such withdrawals.  It is DropoutsAtChess.US (use the @ symbol instead of "At."). Please use this address for the following purposes:
            1. To notify us that you will not be able to attend a tournament that you entered.  This should be done at least 2 hours before your first game.
            2. To inquire about a credit or a refund from a past tournament you entered but did not attend.

SPECIAL ADDRESS FOR PRIZES:
           
We have a new email address for mail concerning prizes that were not claimed at tournaments. It is PrizesAtChess.US (use the @ symbol instead of "At.") To contact us regarding a prize due, please use this address so that we do not have to search for your mail among hundreds of other emails.

USCF MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL FOR MOST TOURNAMENTS:
            1 year USCF dues with paper magazine if paid with entry.  Online at chesstour.com, Adult $35, Young Adult $22, Scholastic $15.  By mail, phone or at site, Adult $40, Young Adult $25, Scholastic $17.

To avoid huge ballroom rent, most of our tournaments count on having many players use guest rooms at the host hotel, and asking for the chess rate gives the tournament credit.  For all tournaments, please stay at the tournament site whenever possible and ask for the chess rate.  Thank you for your help!
