2006 Arthur Niederhoffer National Youth Tournament
The Arthur Niederhoffer National youth tournament will be held June 17th - 18th , 2006
in Traveler's Choice, Medina, Ohio . The "Arthur
Niederhoffer" National Youth Tournament will be held the preceding weekend on
June 17 & 18 at the Traveler's Choice Hotel, Medina, Ohio. The youth tournament
will be directed by Kim Willis. There will be two youth divisions, with entry
fees of $25/$5. The top division is for ages 16-21 and those under 16 who want
to play for the National Youth Title. The winner of this division will be
declared National Youth Champion, and the top two places will qualify for
upcoming World Youth Championship. The second division is for less experienced
youth. I do not have a prize distribution at this time for the Youth Tournament,
but, for comparison, $755 ($300 to first) was awarded last year.
The format will consist of 8 rounds of 3-move restriction using the Game Point system; ACF Membership will be required to enter, and players in the top division will be required to record games (Game sheets provided). Registration is Saturday, June 17, from 8 am to 8:45 am followed by a short meeting for rules & pairings, with play beginning immediately after. Players will have 2 hours per round with 1 hour for lunch break each day.
See The National Tournament Event on Calendar entry for further hotel and area information.
