Cell phones will be collected for 5SS Weekend Championship events:
- Please turn in your cell phone to the TD before entering the tournament hall.
- This is an anti-cheating measure to protect players and the integrity of the game.
- This policy will be enforced on a trial basis.
- This policy will be applicable to only our 5SS weekend long championship tournaments (approx 5 times a year).
- You may retrieve your cell phone when your game is over.
- If you are seen with a cell phone in the restroom or on your person anywhere while in the midst of a round, this is grounds for an immediate forfeiture of your game or any other penalty as deemed appropriate by the tournament director.
- We may use electronic detection wands on players at any time. Random spot checks may occur.
- Participation in events at The Chess Refinery means players accept and will adhere to the guidelines noted above.
