Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I have to pay $20 for the Veterans Banquet?
You don't. You can enjoy the Veterans Banquet for FREE — Just make a decision and register by 21 September 2021.
Keep in mind this 62nd USAFOCC is no different than any before it. Provided their US Chess membership is current, chess–playing Veterans can show up at the last minute (even after Round One) and play.
But, please also keep in mind the Organizers accomplished a great deal of planning, preparation and fundraising to create an epic Championship experience few will ever enjoy. If we told you the real cost for your dinner you would realize $20 is actually nothing!
So, please be fair and make your decision to join in the fun. Tell us you're coming by 21 September 2021.
We appreciate the lead time.
