Annual CCC Election of Officers – April 4, 2018

March 29th, 2018

Per our bylaws, the first meeting in April each year is for the election of officers.  We need our members to be present to have a quorum else it will be postponed until a quorum attends.  The election will be for president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.  Our officers take care of the business of our club and set schedules for tournaments and special events.  If anyone is interested in becoming a club officer, please contact one of the current officers and we can advise the roles of responsibility accordingly.

Also, our annual club championship usually begins on the second Wednesday of April each year, so sign up is between 7:00-7:30pm on April 11 with the 1st round beginning soon thereafter.  We are planning a time control of Game 75 with a 10 or 15 second increment.  Rounds will be each Wednesday thereafter with the number of rounds based on number of registered players.  USCF membership is required but entry is free for current club members.  Dues are $10 per year for those who need to join or renew.

Bring your sets and clocks!

See you there!
