2017 Spring All Stars posted.

The Spring 2017 All-Stars List has been posted! This list consists of the players in each grade who had the highest ten established ratings, and who played rated games between January 1, 2017 and May 7, 2017.  Please carefully read the qualification rules, but if you think that you see something incorrect in the list, let us know, and we’ll check and add you if necessary.

All-Stars lists are published each trimester of the year. Any player on one or more of the winter, spring or summer lists — or on the 2017 Lifetime Achievement list (to be published next fall), or any member of the Order of the Knight who has played a NWSRS rated game between 9/1/16 and 8/31/17 — will be eligible to participate in the 2017 10th Annual Oregon All-Stars Invitational, which we plan to hold in October 2017 (details to come next September). Congratulations to everyone on the list!
