§ Rules of entry to the Checkmate Cup were revisited and updated:
If you have a team that did not compete last year, there is a 1 time team fee of $50.00. Those that attended last year, only need to bring a donation with each player. Your team may only enter if they have played in at least 4 previous seasonal tournaments, including Quad A regionals (any 3 scholastic-sponsored events, after the US Membership Tournament, and the Quad A regional).
