NOTICE REGARDING USCF DUES
All players playing in rated sections must be a current member of the USCF. If you are playing in a rated section for the first time, or if your membership has lapsed, you must pay these dues. You can do so by following the link below, or by paying the NSCF when you submit your entry form. A section can not be rated if all dues are not paid; thus all players are inconvenienced.
If you are a new member or need to renew, you may find it simplest to pay your dues online at www.uschess.org. (You may renew your USCF membership at any time without losing the months already paid for.) When you join, you will be issued a USCF ID (reuse your ID when you renew) and a current expiration date.
There is a space in the NSCF tournament entry form for you to indicate your USCF number and expiration date. Please fill this in carefully; it will be used to rate the tournament. If you register at the tournament site, please bring this information with you.
