For K-12 players, including those playing in their first event.

This is a US Chess rated quads style chess tournament. Players will be placed into groups of four based on rating*, unrated players participating in their first tournament will be grouped by age. Quads are non-elimination, and each player will play everyone in their group for a total of three games. At the end of the third game, the winner of each quad will receive a trophy, and the second place finisher will get a medal. 

The time control for this tournament is G/25; d/5, meaning that both players start with 25 minutes on their clocks, and have a five-second delay each move before their clock starts ticking down.

For new players and players rated under 800, quads typically finish in about 60-90 minutes. For more experienced players, the event can last 90-120 minutes, and as long as 3 hours (although this is rare).
