Here is the announcement and details for the upcoming tournament on January 22nd.
This will be the Mark Peach Memorial Chess Tournament. I want to thank Joe McFadden for contacting Mark’s widow, Ari, to obtain her permission/blessing to hold this tournament in his honor. Most of you knew Mark as he was a regular on Saturdays at Black Dog Cafe. He passed away earlier this year on April 30th and he has been greatly missed ever since.
TIPPs (Tallahassee Involvement and Participation Points) will be awarded to Tallahassee Chess Club Members that play in the tournament. You earn 60 TIPPs for a win and 30 TIPPs for a draw (this is based on the G/60 format). In addition, you can earn an additional 50 TIPPs for early registration!
