2018 OSCF Championship Qualifier
NWSRS and USCF dual rated if all players in quad are USCF members
On July 8-9, the Portland Chess Club is running the 3rd Annual Rose City Sectionals tournament. This tournament is similar to a class championship with 200 point sections. It’s a great way for up and coming scholastic players to get some experience with longer time controls and to compete for good cash prizes and trophies by playing in a section with similarly rated players. The tournament is a 2018 OSCF State qualifier and is dual rated in US Chess and NWSRS. Due to space at the club facility, the tournament is limited to the first fifty players. Reserve a spot online and find more information about the event at pdxchess.org.
Every year, our players walk away from Seaside with fantastic t-shirts produced on-site by our vendor, Northwest Designs. Each year, the great art on the t-shirt is designed by one of our players. We’re looking for the T-shirt design that will be featured on this year’s shirts. If you have the selected design, you will win a free entry to the tournament ($35 value), a free T-shirt ($20-25 value), and $75! If you’re the first runner up, your design will be featured on the front of the State Championship Program. The deadline is coming quickly, though, so get your pencils, pens, and crayons sharpened, and your creative energies flowing!
T-Shirt Design Contest
Parents or adults affiliated with tournament attendees may submit designs, but preference for designs will be given to NSWRS-rated players and their siblings (and the award remains the same)! All entries will become property of OSCF and will not be returned. The design must contain three phrases: 1) “12th Annual OSCF State Chess Championship” or (if the chess theme is obvious) “12th Annual OSCF State Championship”, 2) “May 5-6, 2017”, and 3) “Seaside, Oregon”.
There is no limit on colors for submissions, although the final t-shirt design may be limited in production and altered as necessary for t-shirt production. Shirts will be produced on demand, on site, and on the customer’s choice of shirt color. All submissions must be submitted either by dropping them with an OSCF representative at an OSCF qualifying tournament or electronically as an email attachment, along with a T-shirt Design Contest Application Form, to email@example.com.
Deadline: Noon on Tuesday, April 11, 2017
