2024 Update on Rating

This year we will continue to NZCF- and FIDE-rate as many events as possible. This applies to the Lightning Championship, all the legs of the Rapid Championship, and all the standard-rate events, ie Summer Cup, Autumn and Spring Tournaments, and the Club Championships. Players MUST be paid-up members of the North Shore Chess Club in order to take part (yes, it is OK to be a member of other clubs in addition). Players who are not NZ residents or citizens must have FIDE ID from their home country.
In 2024 the following will still apply:
If you have had Covid recently, then we recommend that you do not return to chess club until your RAT test is negative. Let's keep everybody safe.
Masks are still required for everybody at the club.
