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 free game review and analysis class schedule will be updated periodically when it becomes known when the class will take place in a particular month. 4) The Tuesday Quads usually start on the first Tuesday each month. The January and September Tuesday Quads start on the second Tuesday to avoid starting on New Year’s day and the day after the Oregon Open finishes, respectively. No Tuesday Quads in October due to the Club Championship. 5) The Sunday Quads is usually on the third Sunday each month. The February Sunday Quads is on the fourth Sunday to avoid being at the same place and time as the Oregon State Championship & Invitational on the third and second Sundays and 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 Easter on the third Sunday and being on the same weekend as the OSCF State Championship on the second Sunday. The June Sunday Quads is on the fourth Sunday to avoid being on Father’s day. December Sunday Quads is on the fourth Sunday to avoid conflicting with the Portland Winter Open. 6) The Game in 60 is usually on the last Saturday each month. The April game in 60 is on the second to last Saturday to avoid being on the same weekend as the Sunday Quads. The May Game in 60 is on the second Saturday to avoid competing with the Washington Open on the last Saturday and 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 August Game in 60 is on the second to last Saturday to avoid conflicting with the Oregon Open. The November Game in 60 is on the second to last Saturday to avoid being on Thanksgiving weekend and conflicting with the Washington Class Championships. 7) The Unrated Rapid is usually on a Saturday each month where we don’t have another tournament scheduled for that weekend. The April Unrated Rapid is on April 27 instead of April 13 to avoid competing with the OSCF State Championship and the May Unrated Rapid is on May 19 instead of May 26 to avoid competing with the Washington Open. No Unrated Rapid in July due to the Portland Rapid and Blitz Championships. 8) The 9th Annual Oregon Senior Open was moved from April to March as the only weekend available for it in April would have put it back to back with another two-day tournament and conflicted with the OSCF State Championship. 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, the Vancouver Open which is sponsored by the Washington Chess Federation, and the Oregon Open scholastic side-event which is sponsored and run by the Oregon Scholastic Chess Federation. This year’s Clark Harmon Memorial Open is co-sponsored by contributors to the Clark Harmon Memorial Open fund, and the Oregon Open is co-sponsored and run with the Oregon Chess Federation.
