Game/25 & Blitz

“Starting time for the Quick tournament at SLCC this Summer is changed to 12:30 because the library is now closing at 4 pm on Saturdays.  Also, no one under the age of 16 is to participate at this time, for safety considerations at the request of the director of the library.”

G/25 with 4 second increment is held weekly except the last Saturday of the month when the format changes to rated Blitz at G/5 with 3 second increment.  Quick chess tournaments are not held when conflicting with other local/state adult tournaments.

When the college is closed we move to University of Utah Student Union Cafeteria
