Game Results

We recommend that white contacts black in each pairing to arrange a date to play their game on or before the deadline for each round.

The winner of each game should contact Gary of the result. If the game is drawn the player of the white pieces should contact Gary.

All game results must be given at the latest by the Friday of the round completion date.

If no result is given after two days of the round completion date then that game will be double defaulted (0-0).
