If you cannot attend a game or need to be late, please get in contact with me (7639487) if possible, so I can change pairings or inform your opponent.
If a player is late for a round, the clock will be started on time by the opponent. If a half hour passes without the late player’s first move being made, he/she will forfeit the game.
