The TOCC’s next tournament, the 2018 Go Gold for Super Joey Open, begins Sept 10!
Like the last one, this event will consist of four sections: Open, Under 1700, Under 1300 and Junior Under 900.
The top 3 sections will play 5 rounds at the typical one-round-per-week format, while the Junior U900 is a scholastic section and will play 5 DOUBLE-rounds. This means that you play two faster games against the same opponent each week, for a total of 10 games! (Scholastic players rated under 900 have the option to play in the Junior U900 or the regular U1300 section).

We appreciate you signing up in advance as it is a big help to us!
This event will run from Sept 10 to Oct 8. Please note the club is closed this Mon, Sept 3 in observance of Labor Day.
For this event, we are partnering with the Super Joey Foundation, a local nonprofit organization working to support families affected by childhood cancer. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and gold is the color representing childhood cancer awareness (like pink for breast cancer). Hence the unusual name of the tournament!
