Not exactly a scholastic event (adults are welcome to play too) and definitely not an OSCF qualifier (players must be from Eugene or Corvallis/Albany), but a Corvallis vs. Eugene “Civil War” match will be fought on October 22. Players ranging from unrated intermediates and U1200s to strong experts will be playing. The format is three rounds G/90. To the greatest extent possible, players will be paired against opponents near their own playing strength and teammates will not paired against each other. If you are comfortable playing G/90 and live in (or near) Corvallis or Eugene, join the team for the camaraderie, great chess, and civic pride. Contact Dan Dalthorp (firstname.lastname@example.org for Corvallis/Albany) or Rob Fisette (email@example.com for Eugene) for more info or to register.
