Notes: 1) Casual chess occurs every Wednesday. No casual chess on January 11 due to the bad weather. 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 weather and rescheduled to March 4-5 and combined with the Portland Spring Open. 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. The February, May, and November Quad 45’s are earlier to avoid competing with the Oregon State Championship and Invitational, May Game in 60, and November Game in 60, respectively. 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 making 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 being sponsored and run by the Oregon Chess Federation. This year’s Oregon Open is co-sponsored and run by the Portland Chess Club Oregon Chess Federation and the Clark Harmon Memorial Open is also sponsored by contributors to the Clark Harmon Memorial Open fund.
