Participation

Anyone who shows up for RRSO will play chess.

Beginning with RRSO XVI (2018), the match boards are reserved for players who contact their Team Captains and commit to play (the earlier the better).  The Team Captains review and approve the Team Rosters with the Chief TD.  The official Team Match Pairings are announced at the tournament site on RRSO Day.

Everyone else plays in the Murray County Open.  However, the Murray County Open is our Reserve. Players are moved from there to plug holes when necessary. At RRSO XVII, every single player who contacted us ("Hey, Guys. I am in!") played in the Match Section. Two walk-ins who did not let us know played in MCO because there was no time to find suitable opponents.
