Please note that there are stairs to both playing areas. If this is a problem, I can arrange to use a room on the main floor (there are still two steps to get into the building), but it would be helpful to know beforehand. Coffee/tea/water is available. Fast food/sit-down restaurants/convenience stores are within a few minutes’ commute. Two or three hotels are about 5 minutes away, and many are within about 20 minutes. There will also be a small selection of chess literature for sale.

One half-point bye allowed; must declare by the start of round 2.
