1. Any Rated Beginner Open that includes "National Chess Day" in it's TLA title gets both a free TLA and free rating fees
2. Any 1-day event for Oct 8 which has "National Chess Day" in it's TLA title gets a free TLA
3. Any 2-3 day event held over a period which encompasses Oct 8, which has "National Chess Day" in it's TLA title, will get free TLA and free rating fees
4. Please note the June 10 deadline for organizers to submit their TLA for the August 2011 Chess Life Magazine. If you have any questions about composing your TLA, contact Joan Dubois at [email protected]

Organizers will once again be encouraged to submit articles and photographs for possible publication for Chess Life Magazine and Chess Life Online. For inspiration, browse through some of last year's offerings on Chess Life Online on National Chess Day from the origins of National Chess Day to events in Alabama to Arizona, Memphis to Chicago and a big Grand Prix event in Arlington, the Continental Class.
