Nationals Funds Qualifications/Disbursement
Nationals Funds Qualifications

 

The chess club year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30 of each year.  Qualifications for nationals funds begin at that time.

 

Members must...

 

    • Attend 2 Clatskanie Chess Club tournaments
    • Attend 2 Tournament events out of our area
    • Attend chess club at least twice/month
    • Participate in 2 fundraising events
    • Parent coordinates 1 fundraising event that earns at least $100/per club member in the family who wishes to attend nationals.

Nationals Funds will be used to pay the entry fees and travel for each qualified club member based on points.

 

We will add up the total number of knowledge & participation points on the cards of all the kids who are going to nationals and meet the club qualifications.  We'll divide that number into the total amount of funds to come up with a dollar amount per point.  Then, we'll multiply that number by the  points each person has earned.  This money will be used to pay for airfare, entry fees and hotel expenses.

 

 

EXAMPLE:

 

Spiderman  473 points

Superman  622 points

Batman  244 points

Wonder Woman  557 points

          

Total points earned        1896

Nationals Fund             $1200

Dollar amount per point   .63 (1200 divided by 1896)
