I just became a Club Tournament Director for the USCF (pretty easy; any player with a rating needs to just mail in a form) and while looking through the materials I had a brainstorm.
Some day later this year at several locations throughout the US, players from RHP who are members of the USCF meet and play in USCF sanctioned and rated tournaments organized by the players from RHP! More than just meetups, this would be an actual chance to play in an actual tournament against fellow RHPers. Of course, there could be socializing and fist fights after!
I am willing to open a Affiliate of the USCF to sponsor said tournaments; the fee is fairly nominal ($40) and won't break me IF there is sufficient interest. I picture the tourneys as either Swiss or Quads with at least 8 players minimum limited to RHP members. The tourneys would have to be self-financing, of course and we'd need some other RHPers who were TDs or willing to become one.
Is anybody interested? Does anybody have any ideas on how to make this come about?
Brainstorm with me, people!!
