  1. Please join us for the Blitz Championship! We are trying to make this a strong, fun annual event where every person feels welcome and competes for appropriate prize.

    Long-term goal is to have Blitz+Quick championships with prizes large enough to make it a nation-wide event. Let's start at the state level and build this up!

    Any suggestions as to how to make events with fast time control appealing are most welcome.
