The rules are as usual; entry is open to all adult club members, and juniors whose rating exceeds 1100. In the event of an odd number of players in the first round, a special invite will be extended to the top-rated junior under 1100 to even the draw up.
Rounds are scheduled for 5th and 19th July, and 2nd, 16th and 30th August. Time control for all games will be 1:45 each. The regular club night will not be open on these nights due to a lack of supervision; it will restart in September, with the Frank Scott Shield scheduled to start on the Wednesday after exam results night.
