Notes: 1) Casual chess occurs every Wednesday. Any cancellation of the casual chess will be posted on the PCC website. 2) The schedule is always subject to change. 3) The Tuesday Quads usually start on the first Tuesday each month. The September Tuesday Quads start on the second Tuesday to avoid starting the day after the Oregon Open finishes. No Tuesday Quads in October due to the Club Championship. 4) The Sunday Quads usually takes place on the third Sunday each month. The February Sunday Quads is on the fourth Sunday to avoid being at the same time and place as the Oregon State Championship & Invitational on the third and second Sundays and from being on the same day as the Superbowl on the first Sunday. The April Sunday Quads is on the fourth Sunday to avoid being on the same weekend as the OSCF State Championship. The June Sunday Quads is on the fourth Sunday to avoid being on Father’s day. The November Sunday Quads is on the second Sunday to avoid being on the same weekend as the November Game in 60. 5) The Game in 60 usually takes place on the last Saturday each month. The May Game in 60 is on the second Saturday to avoid competing with the Washington Open on the last Saturday and avoid being on the same weekend as the Sunday Quads on the third weekend (putting the Sunday Quads on the second Sunday so the Game in 60 could be on the third Saturday would have put the Sunday Quads on Mother’s Day). The November Game in 60 is on the second to last Saturday to avoid competing with the Washington Class Championships. 6) The Portland Spring Open is on March 24-25 instead of March 10-11 to avoid conflicting with the Chess for Success Championships. 7) The annual Clark Harmon Memorial Open rotates between Oregon and Washington and is in Washington this year. 8) 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 by the Washington Chess Federation. This year’s Oregon Open is co-sponsored and run with the Oregon Chess Federation.
