What makes the Dallas Chess Club able to operate?  These are the key funding methods and where we need your help:

  1. Please pay your Dallas Chess Club memberships in a timely manner. 
  2. Fundraiser Fridays help as well as the FIDE tournaments when they make money.  But the most important funding that can make or break the club is the following:

The Texas Grade, The North/Central Texas State Scholastic, The Texas State and Amateur and the Southwest Open are very important in funding the club. Especially since these tournaments pose a big financial risk to the Club,

Feb 10  Saturday

Notes

Please attend these tournaments and Please stay at the tournament hotel. 

This is important as the cost of the meeting space is dependent on the room nights sold.

 

If we sell the required room nights, the space is practically free. If we do not sell enough room nights, then the space can cost up to tens of thousands of dollars. The club does not have tens of thousands of dollars to pay the hotel and convention centers.

 

The next critical tournament is the North Texas Scholastic Championships in Houston on March 9-11. Please attend and please stay at the Hilton Houston North.

Thank you.

Hotel reservation notes:

Feb 23  Friday

Feb 24  Saturday

Notes

There are normally three reasons why one may not be able to get a hotel room at a tournament:

 

1.       Hotel or person trying to reserve a room makes a mistake. The hotel is sold out because all the rooms are reserved for the tournament but either the hotel or the ‘guest’ does not mention the group code so they cannot make a reservation.

2.       It is past the cutoff date (the last day to make reservation at group rate.) The hotel has a complicated formula to determine whether to extend the group rate. It is based on how close the hotel is to being sold out. If it is close, the hotel knows they can sell the rooms for a higher price so they will not honor the old rate.

3.       The organizer of the tournament tells how many room nights the tournament needs. This is called the block.  If the block sells out, even if it is before the cutoff date, the hotel may not honor the rate. See 2.
