ICC 15 0 Standard Championship! Open to all members.

The 15-0 Standard Championship starts Aug 4.  This 
Championship like most previous events consists of three stages:
Qualifiers, Candidates, and Finals.  Free-trials members are invited
to play in the first stage, but they cannot advance to later stages
without registering for a paid membership by midnight Saturday, Aug 10.

The 15-0 Champs will have an Under 2100 Champion and an Under 1600
Champion.  The top four finishers rated under 2100 and under 1600 in
each Qualifier will be invited to the respective Class Finals.  Please
see the web page listed below for eligibility requirements and other
details about the class championships.

The first stage will consist of 8 Qualifier events (6 round 15 0
Swisses) during the week of August 4 to 10.  All Qualifiers will be
held on LittlePer in channel 225.  We have a goal of attracting
750 players to the Qualifier series

The top 3 finishers in EACH individual Qualifier and top 6 in overall
Qualifier "series" (cumulative score from all qualifiers combined)
earn invitations to the Candidates Stage.  Alternate spots will be
given to those who just miss out on qualifying.  The schedule of
Qualifiers is as follows (all times are server time or EDT.  To see
server time while at, type "date")

tourney, just show up and type "tell LittlePer join !" when the

Top finishers from Stage 1 will be invited to Stage 2 which consist of
