New Business:

                King and Queen Sections will play 4 rounds beginning with the February 2019 TRM Tournament.

Membership drive “Reach Out 150”:  Join with The Right Move as we begin operation “Reach Out” in a membership drive to support the USCF.  Our goal is to encourage 25 chess players to join or renew their membership each month at the reduced rate of $9.00 for the entire year.

            We will not return to Riverbank State Park before the April 2019 TRM Tournament.  We are deeply appreciative of to all the employees of Roberto Clemente State Park. They do tremendous attention each month to accommodate all the players, parents and coaches.

            Although there is no concession stand at Roberto Clemente, we encourage parents and coaches to bring food in aluminum pan to heat on the outdoor grills.  Carl did an outstanding job bringing hot dogs this past month.

Sometimes players are moved into a different section then they were  registered under. This may be due to a number of reasons.  Our tournament staff responds to your email and phone calls, making adjustments.  Please realize that more than 100 players who do not show up are also being accounted for as our tournament staff continues to do genuinely professional service.   

Attention Players:  If your USCF membership has expired you must renew it prior to the start of your game.  You may see Brother John when you arrive to pay one year renewal  ($9) to be entered into round 1 and staff will then handle renewal.  Players who wish to join USCF for $9 may also start in the rated section by completing the form before 9:15 through Brother John.

Helpful Guidelines

Hi. Here are some helpful guidelines particularly for new players or new visitors today.

Welcome to Roberto Clemente State Park for The Right Move Chess Tournament #239, Act First  on February 3, 2019.  My name is Renee  and I’ll guide you through the tournament process  today.

If you come by car there is very little parking available.  Coming on the Deegan from the South simply exit at 179th Street and follow the signs.  Some who come early are able to park on the street while others may obtain a pass at the office inside the playing area.  The Associated pay section charges $15 for the day parking.  After you park follow the green fence until you see the green door.  Enter the tournament hall through the green door.

If you come by public transit the #40 & 42 bus will bring you to Cedar St and it is a very short walk. (The #4 train to Burnside Avenue will get you to the bus.) Head towards the Hudson River until you find the entry to the State Park.    If you come by AMTRAK you will get off at the Morris Heights station.  You will enter the park through the upstairs area and need to go downstairs to the far end of the building to the check-in area. You must be checked in on time in order to play in round 1.

You will be greeted by the table with the check-in list.  Names are listed in the various sections. The sections are: King, Queen, Rook, kNight, Bishop, Pawn1 and Pawn2, Awe.

The King & Queen sections must check in before 9:15.  They begin their games at 9:30 in the classroom in the back.  All other sections must check in before 9:30 since they begin at 10:00 in the large gymnasium section marked off for the tournament. Once you are checked in you wait until the list is posted about 10 minutes before the start of the round.

Sets and boards are marked off with table numbers.  When the list is posted players report to the correct table number and sit at the allocated color, white or black.  The section chief will tell each section when they can start.

If there is a problem during a game the players should stop playing, and must raise their hand and the problem must be solved before any other move is made.  When the game is finished players raise their hands and the section chief will record the results, win, lose or draw, matching all results with the players names. Players then reset the pieces and  leave the playing area. You then wait for the all the games to finish before the next round can begin.  New opponents with new table numbers are arranged for each round.  After all rounds have been completed the awards are presented.

To win a trophy a player must finish First, Second or Third in that section.  Team Certificates are awarded to First and Second Place teams in each section. Medals are awarded to players with 2.5 or more points in each section.

There is limited space inside. Due to the cold and unpredictable weather we will limit the amount of time between rounds since players are not so inclined to play outdoors. Rounds will be at 10:00, 11:15, 12:30 and 1:45. Awards will be about 3:00.  King & Queen will change to four rounds  9:30, 11:00, 12:30 & 2:00.

I hope this introduction is helpful.  See me with any questions you might have.  Enjoy the day! Have fun! Please bring your own food for consumption.  No concession stand on property.  The outdoor charcoal grill is available for heating aluminum pans of food as well as for hot dogs, etc.  Think creative and enjoy.        -Renee M Scorcia

The Right Move has moved the date for our January tournament from the first Sunday to the second Sunday in  January due to the 53rd Greater New York Scholastic City Championships (GNYSCC) held at the Brooklyn Marriot the week-end of January 5-6, 2019.  Visit www.gnyscc.com for registration and details for that tournament, limited to the first 1500 players.

Date: 12/2/2018    4:00- 4:45 PM Roberto Clemente State Park.

Minutes of the Corporation of the Board of The Right Move for New York City

Present: Renee M Scorcia, Marilyn Scorcia, Yvonne M Scorcia, Brother John McManus, Henry Scorcia; Excused: Alex Beasley, Eliot Weiss, John Doherty

Old Business:

  • Many volunteers contributed their time and talents with set-up and very many other assorted tasks throughout the day.  Your help and magical kindnesses are deeply appreciated.
  • Check-in still presents a problem with many names not properly on the list that is on the website, www.chesstrm.org/NYC  All persons must check the website chesstrm.org/NYC/ with the understanding that swift movement ofthe tournament depends on all making sure the list is correct, and then being on time for check-in. If players are late they must begin play in round two.
  • If you are not a member of USCF and wish to join Operation Reach Out ($9/yearly membership in USCF) you must see Brother John. This applies specially to expired memberships who wish to use $9/year membership in USCF through Operation Reach Out.
  • The tournament hall is an open space and noise between rounds must be kept to a minimum. With the cold and unpredictable weather outdoor activity must be somewhat curtailed. The Right Move will revert to a quicker time schedule with the intent of limiting down-time between games since so many people are confined to this indoor space. New : 10:00, 11:15, 12:30, 1:45.  (Old  10:00, 11:30, 1:00, 2:15.)

Reports:

  • Three persons paid the $5 fee for being checked in automatically and can just check the box at registration all year long and then just show up for their game on time.
  • Nine persons joined/renewed the USCF bringing our total below the 75 target line (total for 3 months) for Operation Reach 150. Our goal is 25 per month.  Help players enjoy the benefit of chess.  Join USCF.
  • Last month seven persons joined the USCF section incorrectly causing much damage to the processing of reports from The Right Move. If you are not a member of the USCF you can not play in a rated section.  The USCF will not rate the entire tournament unless all players are current members.  This confusion may last several days or even weeks until the issue(s) is resolved.

New Business:

Motion:

  1. The Right Move will spend less time between rounds due to the poor weather conditions and the limited space and noise in the tournament hall. Rounds will be at 10:00, 11:15, 12:30, 1:45. Approved by voice vote
  2. The Right Move will send out the confirmation notification (See  Ammendment A) clarifying rules for late arrivals. .  Approved by voice vote
  3. The deadline for entry into The Right Move #238, Think & Do, at Roberto Clemente State Park is Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 at 8:00 PM. Not on list, start play in round 2.  No exceptions. .  Approved by voice vote
  4. The King & Queen sections will play four rounds in the classroom at the new time limit of G/35; d10; Games will be at 9:30, 11:00, 12:30, 2:00  Rejected after discussion

Prepaid Check-in List

The following list shows  all players who have already paid for check-in. When registering you must check the prepaid box on the sign-in sheet for the individual tournament.  Those not on this list (above) must check in on time or you will not play round 1.

Those who check the box and are not on the list do not have to check in and will be paired for Round 1.  You have  agreed to pay the $5 fee and have your name placed on the list.  When you do not show up for Round 1 you will pay the $5 fee for failure to show up and your name will no longer be available for pre-check-in until you meet your obligations.

The prepay plan requires a fee that is forfeited if you fail to show up after we have placed an opponent for you for round 1, since you said with your $5 refundable fee, “I will show up on time or forfeit the $5.”  The fee is good until forfeited for failure show up on time.  (Players may withdraw from a tournament without penalty due to sickness or other activity provided they do so before the pairings for the round are posted.)

Operation “Reach Out 150”

The Right Move Chess invests in you by making USCF chess memberships available at a reduced rate of $9.00. This covers one year membership for youth 18 and under.

To get a rating you must become a member of the United States Chess Federation (USCF) and play in a rated tournament against other (rated) USCF members.  The USCF provides ratings for tournaments and other opportunities.  No non-members may play in a rated tournament. Joining fees for the USCF may vary from $17-$47, depending on age.  (Go to uschess.org to register there if you wish.) This program offers on-site registration for one set fee of $9 for the year once all the info needed is entered.  You should play in the rated section on the day you join the USCF.  (If you renew your membership through this system you must wait until your membership expires before this program will allow you to renew. Therefore if my membership expires on Jan 30 I can renew with USCF beginning about February 1, but not before. This program extends through June, or until 300 people have benefited from this opportunity.

Keeping up to date with The Right Move for December

Hi! Greetings for a joyful  Thanksgiving to all.  May all have abundant food, shelter and clothing.-Renee

Here are: Minutes from the meeting of the Board of Directors for New York City on Nov. 4 at Roberto Clemente State Park:

Present: Brother John McManus, Renee M Scorcia, Marilyn Scorcia, Yvonne Scorcia, Henry Scorcia; Excused- Alejandro B, John Doherty, Eliot Weiss

Old Business:

  • Parking passes provided by the Park were used effectively and no parking on the circle was observed. Thanks all.  Remember to advise all drivers that they are not allowed to park on the circle.
  • Progress at Riverbank State Park makes the new projected date for tournaments to return to Manhattan might be as early as March. The Right Move is most enthusiastic and energized in our temporary “home” at Roberto Clemente State Park.
  • The charcoal grill can be used for cooking, as our first successful ‘hot dog cook outing’ proved on Sunday. The staff of Roberto Clemente State Park were most helpful in contributing to this success story.
  • The June trophies were again available for pick up and those not claimed will be put aside for future use. Thanks to those who were forced to wait to pick them up.  Your gentleness throughout this period had been extraordinary.
  • The level of noise in the tournament hall has become a problem, particularly in the later rounds. Respect for those finishing games (especially around 1:45 – 2:00) does not allow the necessary quiet for championship play. Go outside to celebrate, talk, or just work off energy. It is not fair to destroy all the good work by forgetting to respect those still playing. Staff alone can’t handle this!  The limitations of space require all to help keep indoors quiet until all games finish.

Reports:

  1. The response to our “Reach Out 150” campaign to bring new members into supporting the USCF exceeded our 25 goal for November. We had 27 paid members join or renew.  Keep it up!
  2. Expired memberships are not allowed to play in USCF tournaments. The “Reach Out 150” campaign of The Right Move attempts to assist players by making the yearly fee $9.   (Any expired memberships will be allowed so see Brother John to show proof of membership or to pay the renewal fee.  Only after that will they be placed into sections.  Expired memberships  are not allowed to play until renewed. This has almost become a problem so it ends here and now.)
  3. Several players were given a yearly USCF membership by The Right Move so that the November tournament could be rated by USCF in a timely fashion. Payment of the $9 fee to The Right Move  will allow them to participate in future tournaments of The Right Move.
  4. The ‘lost parent’ and ‘missing items’ area is located near the computer desk.
  5. If your name is not on the list published on the Website to play in The Right Move tournament you must see Brother John. He will assign you to a section, and you will probably miss the first game.  No exceptions.   Please continue to allow the check-in staff to do their job timely & well.

New Business:

Preparations are being made to establish an end-of-the-year picnic honoring chessplayers at Roberto Clemente State Park during the third week in June.  A brochure will be prepared.  Free hot dogs, hamburgers and ice cream will be available for all.  People may choose to bring other food items to share. A seven round non-rated blitz tournament might be offered.  Recognition for players and coaches could be presented in a relaxed setting. Is the staff doing all this?  Of course not!  Everyone must get involved to make this work.  (This has been an established custom from the Albany Chapter of The Right Move, dating since 2004, precisely because they have facility to run such an event.)  Now this opportunity arises in the Bronx precisely because Roberto Clemente State Park has such tremendous resources (Picnic grounds, benches, etc.)  Step up now.  Who will lead?  No response = no picnic.

The non-rated beginner’s section is not intended to be for players with experience.  New players are meant to be encouraged by joining the beginner’s section. Players who win a trophy in the beginners’ section are no longer considered ‘beginners’.  It is not fair to true beginners that they meet players who have lots of tournament experience. Trophy winners should join the uscf and play in a rated section against players of equal ability. Players start as non-rated and establish a rating playing against other rated players. .  The only reason The Right Move can do a 4-round tournament in one day is because of the USCF, and the programs on computer they helped develop  that aid our print-outs, pairing sheets and the rest.

The New York City Kasparov Scholastic Championships are being held at the Brooklyn Marriot on Jan 5-6. Good luck to all those players and teams hoping to become the next NYC Champions.  Sign up early and save $$$.  This is not a feature of The Right Move. It is not free.  Please go through CCA for entry into that event.

Don’t forget to give a nod to Fabricio Caruano and Magnus Carlson, our World Championship players. (Nov 9-28, 2018 in London.)

A final word of gratitude goes to our players, friends and volunteers.  Your cooperation in signing up, being on time for games and reporting results does make the day run smoothly and well.

Don’t forget. We have magnificent volunteers who continue to impress!  Thank you to so very many nameless people who accomplish many things in the blink of an eye, making chess so very possible and enjoyable.

-Yvonne M Scorcia, Secretary

-Rene M Scorcia, President

The Right Move Board of Directors for NYC

Hi.  Renee again.  As President I invite you to our Board Meetings that take place after awards.  Here are the minutes for our first meeting of this new year, my very first, on Oct. 21, 2028, “Hard Work” at Roberto Clemente State Park:

October 21, 2018 Meeting of Corporation of the Board of The Right Move at Roberto Clemente State Park, New York, NY

Attendance:  Brother John McManus, Yvonne M. Scorcia, Marilyn C. Scorcia, Renée M. Scorcia, Henry J. Scorcia, Eliot Weiss (excused), Alex Beasley (excused)

Old Business:

Great big buckets of gratitude to all who volunteered, especially :  Carl Aridas and Nagareja Aeturi.  Your smiles amid all the hustle and bustle were terrific rewards for all to see.

Thank you to Carlos Luna and his family.  They provided fresh,  free hot dogs for all to enjoy!  Yes, that was very refreshing and thoughtful!

John Doherty and his staff were most helpful throughout the day, especially with the free parking passes that John was able to hand out.  Space is very limited so do not expect too much as conditions may change from time to time.

The tables and chairs will be combined into half the gym, putting the tournament section into a smaller area that will be marked out for players only.  Great quiet must be kept in the playing hall (all areas inside). Please use the area outside the gymnasium outside the green door for running, playing ball, etc. Continue to be on time for all games. (King and Queen sections will be in the classroom apart from the gym.  Pairings will be posted inside the room for these sections.)

We are most grateful to those champions from June who were able to pick up their June trophies on Oct 14 during the Blitz tournament and again on Oct 21 here at the State Park.  After Nov 4 we will no longer have them available for pick up.

Attendance at The Right Move is expected to grow in the coming months, so please keep being thoughtful and considerate for all. Report any problems or concerns quickly so as to resolve any situation. With the help of all making The Right Move(s) grand success and much happiness follows.

Reports:

  • Due to the numbers of players in several sections it was necessary on Oct 21 to regroup players to provide games for their sections.  The King and Queen sections may have to be combined to get at least 12 people in each section. The lower section that has to play against higher rated players then need one less point to qualify for medals. When the Pawn section combined with the Bishop section 1.5 points becomes the new norm for a medal for the pawn section, since they were playing above their level.  The top 2 pawn players should still receive trophies. When there are less than 12 players in a section only two trophies are awarded.
  • 11 people participated in Operation “Reach Out 150” to get 150 youth to join/renew uscf membership @ $9/year. (Our stated goal is 25 per month.) Quick Math 11/25 = 44% We did not reach our goal for October.
  • Thanks to those who contributed $26.00 in donations and pencil sales
  • 2 more players joined the pre-check-in list to avoid standing in the check-in line. This $5 is refundable and lasts all year at The Right Move tournaments, or until forfeited by failure to show up.

New Business:

We need your help.  We have purchased 300 memberships for the uscf so that we could lower the price for membership.  Our drive, titled  “Reach Out 150” urges all to get more players to benefit from the joys of chess.  Join with The Right Move as we begin operation “Reach Out” in a membership drive to support the USCF.  Our goal is to encourage 25 chess players to join or renew their membership each month. This reduced rate of $9.00 for the entire year is a tremendous saving and makes it possible for more to enjoy chess more fully.

The pictures taken and posted on the web from Oct 21 shows the real hard work done by all.  Keep it up, all.  Really good to see.  More creative work to come from our talented staff and friends.  Keep challenging us to improve.

Work on repairs to Riverbank State Park is progressing rapidly.  When we have more information we will let send out emails through mailchimp, our faithful companion, to keep you informed as well.

Thanks to all who made Sunday Oct. 21 so outrageously  outstanding.  It is a magnificent tribute to all our players, friends, and all dedicated to seeing youth grow through chess. Thank you to all our volunteers, most of whom choose to remain nameless. (We thank the two who signed up as Volunteers on the Registration list.  Simply report to Marilyn for assignment from 9:00 -12:00 or 12:00 – 2:30.)
