    That is good news. The question is there enough IM's in the field for a potential player to get an IM norm?

    I am sorry to inform you that it isn’t.
    A norm tournament must be registered at least 30 days prior to the start of the tournament with FIDE and the request to register this tournament was only 15 days in advance.
    The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

    Guys,

    Actually, Bill is correct on this point. This is why organisers should clearly give details well in advance along with if it is a norm tournament or not. If the State Championship is unsure about this, it should be register as a norm event to be on the safe side even if it does not meet the norm requirements in the end.

    Bill, well spotted and informing us of this. This becomes a good lesson for organisers out there.
