CCLA Server Team Championship (Played in Odd-Numbered Years) - this is one of our
most popular events. Teams will consist of six players. Team and individual applications accepted. If you apply as
an individual we will assign you to a team based on your rating and a team's needs. The number of divisions, teams
per division and games played per opponent depend on the number of entries. Teams are assigned to divisions based
on the average team rating. Each player plays one or two games against opponents on his board (Board 1 plays all
other Board 1 players, etc.)
|Coming in August, 2021|
Summer Server Series - there are four seasonal tournaments, Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer Server
Series. One round. No prizes. Entrants grouped by rating. Players paired as either a
7-player single round robin, or as a 4-, 5- or 6-player double-round robin. Total number of games played is six to ten, depending on number of entrants and
pairing option. Multiple entries permitted.
|Entry deadline - (Summer): Aug 15, 2021|
