    GMs and IMs get in quick for your appearance fees!

    Any GMs or IMs who confirm their entry BEFORE the end of July, will receive a $50 appearance fee.

    It is obviously a token amount of money, but we would like to get a big name player commit to the event early so that the list of entries grows quickly.

    I wish i would get appearence fees, why does it take so much effort to get the truly strong players to play?

    I think more strong players will confirm their entry closer to the event.

    It doesnt help the tournement very much if the strong players join closer to the event.

    While 2250 rated IMs get an appearance fee...2350-rated FMs at least have an option of disappearing for free
