(Counts on fingers) 119 players have preregistered for the Championship and 48 preregistered for the Scholastic: nice!
Haven't registered yet? Online registration is closed, but please come to the DoubleTree in Oak Brook: you can still register at the door!
For the three-day schedule, be there before 11:30 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday 9/3/11: the entry fee is a reasonable $90. If you register after 11:30, the price goes up to $100.
For the two-day schedule, be there before 10:30 Sunday 9/4/11: the entry fee is again $90. If you register after 10:30, the price goes up to $100.
If you are rated under 1799 and playing in the Open Section (a good thing to do for ambitious players rated above 1600, but probably a bit much for the rest of us), there's a surcharge of $10.
If you are registering for Saturday's scholastic event, be at the site before 10:30: the price is $30 cheap. After 11:30 a.m., $35.
