November 26, 1971

Dear Chess Player,

The Boise Chess Club would like to announce the scheduling of the 1971 WESTERN IDAHO OPEN chess tournament, to be held at the Boise YMCA Building, 10th and State Streets, on Saturday, December 4, 1971. This will be a four round, one day swiss style tournament as it has been in the past.

There will be one section of play which will be USCF rated. Entry fee will be $3.50 for adults and $1.75 for juniors 18 years of age and younger. Cash awards will be made to adults with trophies for junior winners.

Play will begin at 9:00 am. promptly with registration starting at 8:15 am. For those using clocks, the time limit will be 40 moves in 1½ hours. Round times will be as follows: Rd. 1 = 9:00-12:00; Rd. 2 = 12:30-3:30; Rd. 3 = 4:00-7:00; and Rd. 4 = 7:30-10:30.

This will be an informal tournament and we will have a playing room with a separate room for "skittles" games. You do not need to bring chess sets or boards but if you have clocks, you might bring those.

During the tournament, informal talks between club leaders will be held to determine future tournament dates and any other matters that should be discussed.
