Due to popular demand, we hope to have more frequent blitz tournaments and a few action rated tournaments too. You can log on to the message board and state your preference for the best day and time to have these events. We are considering Sunday afternoon, and also Thursday night, but any other weeknight might due. Friday is 1st choice because most people don't have to get up early and work the next day. But will it hurt Gambito attendance? We will see...
