    Other Things
    Chess sets are provided for play. Please bring your own digital clock to make sure we have enough clocks. If neither of players has a digital clock (highly unlikely scenario), both will be getting a zero. To keep the entry fee low, we want to encourage each and every chess player to have his or her own digital clock. Players taking a bye in Round 1 can pay the entry fee 10 minutes before the Start of Round 2. Free parking.
