Hi everyone,

In order to become a member, each player must apply online or download and fax application to 703-681-7249. Registration deadline is April 20th. On-site registration will not be available. The lucky players to be selected will be funded by Family and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Command (FMWRC) to represent the Army at the 2011 Championships in San Diego, CA, June 13th through 17th.

An additional tournament will be played against international players at the NATO Chess Championships in Lithuania in August 2011.
