  • Please join us for our first Crown Classical Quads, which will be USCF-rated.  Due to popular request, we have now added trophies for junior players (ages 6-14) winning their quads and chess medals for other junior players (ages 6-14).


  • Venue. Gaithersburg Library, Medium Room 3, 18330 Montgomery Village Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20879. Note: We have corrected the address, so please be sure you have the correct address. Also beware of speed and red light cameras.


  • Tournament Appointment Holders. Chief Tournament Director: FM Luke Wong; Assistant Tournament Directors: Richard Ha & Aloysius Han


  • Date and Time. Saturday, June 18, 2022, from 11AM-530PM. Registration: 1045-11AM. 1st Round: 11AM. 2nd Round: 130PM. 3rd Round: 330PM.


  • Time control/Format. 3 rounds, G/55 minutes, plus 5 seconds delay. Last section may be a Swiss hex with same time controls.


  • Entry Fee. $0, but requesting $10 donation to help offset room rental, USCF tournament submission, and medals/trophies costs.


  • USCF membership. Players need to ensure their memberships are current; you can renew your membership directly with USCF. We will not pair players with inactive or no USCF memberships. (An inactive membership or no membership causes delays to our result submission and lead to disappointed players as well.)


  • Prizes: Junior players (ages 6-14) winning their quad will win trophies. Other junior players (ages 6-14) will receive chess medals. No prizes for adults or junior players ages 15+.


  • Pre-Register: Pre-register at: Only first 40 USCF-active players who pre-register are guaranteed playing spots. Anybody pre-registering or on-site registering thereafter is not guaranteed a playing spot. Rated pre-registrants, so far, range from 453 to 2062.


  • Please bring your own chess sets, clocks, notation sheets, and pens. We will have extra notation sheets and pens on hand, as well as earplugs.
