Boylston Chess: call for tournament directors.



Call for Tournament Directors ...



The Boylston Chess Club
Needs Your Help

We urgently need 

more tournament directors (TDs) 

to keep offering 

a wide variety of tournaments 

each month.  


Our small core group of currently active TDs 

is stretched quite thin, and 

we cannot run as many events 

at our beautiful new site 

as we would like 

due to insufficient (wo)manpower. 













Please consider becoming 

a certified USCF tournament director, 

if only to act as an assistant TD from time to time.

The certification process is 

extremely straightforward:


1)  Read the USCF rulebook 

("USCF Official Rules of Chess"), 

available at the club or online, 

e.g., on Amazon 

2) Fill out and return the following form 

to the USCF: Form 




please consider helping out as a TD 

occasionally to keep the tournaments 

we all enjoy running smoothly. 

For example, perhaps you can help direct 

while your child plays 

to help support the club's contributions 

to scholastic chess.



Finally, whether or not you choose to become a tournament director - please consider serving as a liaison to the USCF, to deal with the formalities of running USCF Grand Prix tournaments and/or to post our tournaments on the US Chess website online to raise awareness nationwide of our tournaments.

Please feel free to contact us or any other TD if you have any questions.  We look forward to working with you.
