No April Fools- Just Good Plans

March 3, 2019 Meeting of Corporation of the Board of The Right Move at Roberto Clemente State Park, Bronx, NY

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

Minutes from the February 4, 2019 meeting were approved by voice vote unanimously.

Old Business

The staff at Roberto Clemente State Park continue to rise up to the challenges whether winter advisory or winter warning.  Clean and hospitable surroundings and cheerful service are constant.  Their generosity and service cannot be undervalued.  They are terrific models for all our chessplayers.

Thanks to all who volunteered setting up tables, sets and boards, supervising the players and making all this possible:  from our volunteer staff—Yvonne M. Scorcia, Marilyn C. Scorcia, Renée M. Scorcia, Henry J. Scorcia, Eliot Weiss and Brother John

The new scoresheets arrived and were put into use on this March 3 event.  They now show the correct website in this updated version.

The calendar for the new year has been tentatively accepted and is now published on the website posting Oct. 13 as the start of the 2019-2020 scholastic chess year.

The lack of a concession stand at Roberto Clemente State Park continues to be a problem.  Remember to bring your own food. 

The use of the hot charcoal grill is completely under utilized.  Thanks to Carl and Matthew for their splendid  care of providing hot dogs and beans for all FREE in February.  Carl will not be attending the rest of this year due to the soccer and other activities that he serves.

Reports:

  • 24 vouchers were purchased, enabling players to take advantage of joining/renewing USCF for the reduced fee of $9.00. 
  • Thanks to the generosity of many anonymous donors The Right Move received $159.00 in donations today.
  • Only one person signed up for the  refundable Pre-Check in opportunity. You can register and check-in on the website all year long without having to check-in on site for one $5 fee.  The full  list appears on the website. (Failure  to show up  without withdrawing before the pairings are posted forfeits the $5)

New Business:

  • Anybody got a match?  The lighting of the charcoal grill needs competent hands to bring more than the charcoal, lighting fluid and good culinary skill.  Brother John tried to cook and serve more than 200 people hot dogs while helping direct the tournament, but…  Send an email to chesstrm.org subject Cook out241 with volunteers or helpful suggestions.
  • The new officers for 2019-2020 take effect in June 2019 so that October does not catch The Right Move unprepared.  Renee has gathered a great team this past year. Only April and May remain for on the job training.  The new team is due to be announced by  the end of May.
  • Pick your month to help sponsor a tournament to ensure The Right Move can smoothly transition into the coming year. For $200 we can provide trophies, medals and rating fees for one tournament. There are nine (9) tournaments from October until June.   Consider getting a matching gift from your employer  as The Right Move Foundation, Inc.,  is a 501c3 tax deductible organization.

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 #241, On Target on April 7, 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 many players are not too 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 remember to bring your own food for consumption.  The concession stand on property is closed.  However, the outdoor charcoal grill is available for heating aluminum pans of food you have prepared.  Hopefully hot dogs will be available again (FREE).   

Think creatively, be considerate of others,  and let’s make the day truly enjoyable!

        -Renee M Scorcia, President

Look back, look ahead…

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
