This is mostly for fun, rating, and practice. 🙂

Registration is at 12:30pm at the Engineering Building cafeteria.
Round 1 is at 1pm, and we should be finished around 5pm.

Touch move rule will be enforced. Illegal moves can be taken back and do not result in a forfeit as they often do in blitz. However, if someone is seen making multiple illegal moves, it may result in warning and time penalty as deemed necessary. Note: please pause the clock if your opponent makes an illegal move to avoid loss of time.
