Sections with fewer than 10 players may be merged.

In accordance with BCF policy, unrated players may play in any section. Rated players rated within 200 points of the lower section maximum may play up one section.

Pairings will be posted on Thursday just after 6 PM on the Boylston CC website. The cutoff time for registration in time to play a Round is Thursday at 6 PM. Any players who register subsequent to 6 PM will be skipped until the following week's Round. Each Round begins at 6:30 PM except for games whose start times were agreed in advance to be changed.

Registration is closed on 2/4/21 at 6 PM, but at the TD's discretion may be closed earlier. After that each Round's Pairings will be posted over the weekend after the prior Round finishes.

Rating with USCF will be delayed by 72 hours after the completion of the tournament to give lichess time to ensure Fair Play was observed in all games.

Players must join Zoom and Share their Screens or show their play areas in their camera views. The link will be sent to players by e-mail.

Players must be current Members of USCF for the OPEN SECTION ONLY, not the U1900.
