Unrated sections: These sections are designed to introduce beginning chess players to competition. No US Chess membership is required. If a player has some rated experience, the maximum allowable rating is 300. If a player with a rating (300, or below) chooses to play in an unrated section, the tournament organizer still reserves the right to review the player's tournament history and move the player into a rated section. This decision may not be appealed.

Prizes: Trophies to all players scoring 3 points or more in 4 round sections. Awards presented on completion of each section.
