Hi Curtis. This sounds interesting, but can you give us all a sense of the
frequency we can expect to need to play the games? i.e., one game/week, one/2
weeks? I understand this may vary to a certain extent based on response, but
some idea of the target range would be great.

Greetings All Chess Players:
We are starting the US BCA Real Time Division back up, again! I have lots of
great things planned for you, and I am hoping you will help me make 2022 a year
to remember in the Real Time Division!!
So, with no further delay, let's get started!!
To kick things off, I would like to now extend a personal invitation to you to
participate in the 2022 Real Time Divisional Swiss Chess Tournament!! The
Tournament will begin on December 1, 2021. Participants will be split into
groups, based on their playing abilities. Each player in the group will play
each player in their group twice, once as white and once as black. Whoever has
the most points at the end of the tournament will be the winner of their
division. The number of players in each division will depend on how many people
enter the tournament.
To sum things up:
• Participants of the tournament will be divided into divisions depending on
their playing strength.
• Not at the same time, but you will play each player in your division two
times, once as white and once as black.
• At the end of the tournament, the player with the most points in their
division, will be the Champion of their Division!
This is going to be a fun and enjoyable tournament with lots of competition, so
I would highly encourage you to sign up!! It is a good way to meet and get to
know other people in the US BCA, while doing one of our favorite past times...
Do NOT just reply to this email!!
But, instead, please send your request to me at:
Please put “Divisional Tournament Entry”, in the subject line.
All entries must be received by November 29.
So don’t delay, sign up today!!
I really look forward to receiving your response and to welcoming you to the
2022 Real Time Divisional Swiss Chess Tournament!!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know!
