  1. For the scholastic teams, what if a school has a number of kids not divisible by 4 who sign up. Will a team of 3 be allowed to compete? Combining with other schools? How will that be handled?

  2. (1) Can a school send two teams if it has eight players who want to play?
    (2) If you have five players and bring an alternate, can you alternate who sits out each round?
    (3) How do you calculate the average rating of the team if a player on the team was unrated as of the January supplement?
    (4) How is the tournament scored? Do you add up the points for all the players or do you count each round as a team win, loss or draw?
    (5) Can you register for the scholastic tournament on the website? The online registration form only offers you a 2-day or a 3-day playing schedule. How do you indicate you are registering for the scholastic event?
