We are using the official USCF April 2019 ratings: http://www.uschess.org/msa/MbrLst.php
at uschess.org are usually used for players who would otherwise be unrated on the USCF April 2019 Official Rating
List). The April 2019 Official USCF
Rating List should be posted at the USCF website by the fourth week in
March or sooner: http://www.uschess.org/msa/MbrLst.php
Players who enter a section for which their April 2019 rating would make them ineligible will be moved up to the next highest section by rating beginning on the same day, or for their grade division (K-12, K-6, K-3, K-1). For example, a player who entered the K-3 Under 600 Section (Sunday) in March and whose April Official Rating is over 599 would be moved to the K-6 Under 900 Section (Sunday), or the K-3 Championship (which runs both Saturday and Sunday). To move to a different section, please email us at email@example.com (section switches are subject to a $10 charge after April 4).
