Minutes Of The Pre-Season Meeting

On September 1, 2011, the Garden State Chess League held its annual pre-season meeting.

Kevin Chen, Jose Fernandez, John Hagerty, Geoff McAuliffe (of the Kenilworth Kortchnois), Charles Miller, Ed Selling & John Moldovan (representing Summit and the Kenilworth Karpovs) attended.

Chess Mates and Sparta did not send representatives. Both teams have said their status for 2011-12 is undecided.

The Toms River CC expressed interest through a 3rd party (Lou Sturniolo) and was contacted by email & phone.

The following teams paid their dues and confirmed that they will play this season: DOCA Knights, Hamilton, Karpovs, Kortchnois, Staten Island, Summit and West Orange.

A September 25th deadline was set for Chess Mates, Sparta and Toms River, to confirm.

The attendees voted to play with the same rules as last season (including the 1900 rating average) and approved using the USCF's September 2011 Golden Database, to determine ratings.

A schedule was drafted using the table on page 296 of the USCF's Official Rules Of Chess (5th edition). The confirmed teams drew numbers from 1-7 and the undecided teams drew numbers from 8-10.
