Next Tournament

May 14th, 2016

Specht Elementary

Onsite entry will close at 8:30 AM.  All students entering the tournament must have a USCF membership, no JTP.

Five rounds, swiss system.

First round will begin promptly at 9:00 AM.  In order to complete the tournament and get everyone home to spend tim with their families, each successive round will begin as soon as possible after the previous round.  The last tournament held using this system started each round on the hour and was finished with the presentation of trophies by 2:30 PM.




We are going to try a different section format at the Specht spring tournament in order to attempt to create more competitive sections for all ages.  This section format is similar to what is used at many scholastic tournaments in the Houston area.

Team trophies for 6-12 Championship, K-5 Championship, Intermediate (combined U600/U800), and Novice (combined U400/U200).
