Notes: 1) Casual chess occurs every Wednesday. No casual chess on January 11 or November 22 due to the bad weather and Thanksgiving holiday, respectively. Any other cancellation of the casual chess will be posted on the PCC website. 2) The schedule is always subject to change. The 1st Annual Neil Dale Memorial Open was cancelled on January 7-8 due to the bad weather and rescheduled and combined with the Portland Spring Open on March 4-5. Starting in August the Quad 45 moved to Sunday and was renamed Sunday Quads. 3) The Tuesday Quads usually start on the first Tuesday each month. The March and July Tuesday Quads start on the second Tuesday due to TD availability and to avoid playing on the 4th of July, respectively. No Tuesday Quads in October due to the Club Championship. 4) The Club Championship starts on the last Tuesday in September to avoid playing on Halloween. 5) The Quad 45 usually takes place on the third Saturday each month until August when the tournament becomes the Sunday Quads that usually take place on the third Sunday each month. The February and May Quad 45’s are earlier to avoid competing with the Oregon State Championship and Invitational and May Game in 60, respectively. The October Sunday Quads is later to avoid conflicting with the National Chess Day-Portland Fall Open and the November Sunday Quads is earlier to avoid being on the same weekend as the November Game in 60. 6) The Game in 60 usually takes place on the last Saturday each month. The May and November Game in 60’s are earlier to avoid competing with the Washington Open and Washington Class Championships, respectively. 7) The Gresham Open has been replaced with a tournament at the PCC, the Neil Dale Memorial Open, so it’s easier for the majority of players to get to the playing site in case of bad weather and since the cost of the facility in Gresham has gone up. 8) The annual Clark Harmon Memorial Open rotates between Oregon and Washington and is in Oregon this year. 9) All of the above tournaments are sponsored and run by the Portland Chess Club except this years Oregon State Championship & Invitational, Oregon Senior Open, and Oregon Class Championships which are sponsored and run by the Oregon Chess Federation and the Vancouver Open which is sponsored and run by the Washington Chess Federation. This year’s Clark Harmon Memorial Open is co-sponsored by contributors to the Clark Harmon Memorial Open fund, the Oregon Open is co-sponsored and run with the Oregon Chess Federation, and the scholastic side-event is run by the Oregon Scholastic Chess Federation.
