Note: because of Hurricane Sandy and the nor' easter that followed, this event is rescheduled for Sunday, November 18.
For all of those who didn't get to celebrate Halloween, please join us on Nov 11! This applies to you kids in addition to disappointed club members who didn't get to wear their costumes.
Following the morning classes (which will include a discussion of bughouse strategy) there will be the annual 'Horrible Bug Bughouse Tournament' from 1:00 PM to roughly 3:00 PM. Two-person teams will be assigned by random drawing, unless you have already chosen your partner at registration. This event is open to all MCS&C Club Members, Students and Parents. Entry fee for the tournament is $10 per player, with prizes determined by number of entrants (last year 8 players of 20 received prizes). This is also a Chess Party - Halloween refreshments are included and if you want to bring something that's great but not required. Costumes are optional but encouraged!
For more details please see Bughouse Official Rules on the Home Page Menu.
It was interesting to note, during Grandmaster Nigel Davies' recent instructional clinics, that he greatly encouraged Bughouse as a tool for developing the imagination.
