Conrad/Tasby Membership Levels and Goals:


When you register for Chess Club you will immediately be given Member Intern Status, and your coach will assign you a ChessTempo username and password. That allows you to participate in club activities. With appropriate study and practice you will soon be promoted to Full Member or Senior Member Status. All Conrad/Tasby Chess Club players share the following Goals:


Goal 1 - Five Active Online Games and 5 Moves Per Week Per Game (5X5)

Play at least five moves each week against at least five Chess Club opponents. Also maintain a mandatory game against jerryi at all times, and respond to each of his moves within 48 hours. Maintain enough games against Club players to be able to achieve this goal. Coaches and Senior Members are required to respond at least daily to each of their online opponents. The list of coaches and senior members includes: Coach Jerry (jerryi), Coach Gibson (csgibson88), Mohammad (mohammad7), Coach Keonine (ct.keonine), Coach Mancuso (ct.mancuso), Seng (ct.seng.m), Siang (ct.siang.c), and Zar (ct.zar.k) . All Club Players (Intern, Full Member, or Senior Member) are welcome and encouraged to challenge any or all of these players.


Goal 2 - (RD60)

Solve ChessTempo Standard Tactics problems on a regular basis to improve your chess skills. Solve enough problems each week to keep your RD consistently below 60 so that your ChessTempo Tactics Status remains 'Active'. Twenty problems per week will easily keep your status active.


Goal 3 - (Member)

Upon reaching Goals 1 and 2 you will be promoted to Member Status. However, if you do not discipline yourself to work problems and play online games against other Club Members on a daily basis, you may be subject to dismissal from the Chess Club for lack of interest,


Goal 4 (Senior Member)

Work at least 1000 ChessTempo Standard Tactics problems and obtain a ChessTempo Standard Tactics rating above 1200 to achieve Senior Member Status. Senior members will be given Gold ChessTempo memberships. All Senior Members have a continuing responsibility to assist all other Club Members in improving their chess proficiency.


Every Club Member is required to make a reasonable effort to meet the above goals. Evidence of insufficient interest in chess, (e.g. failure to move against each online opponent within seven days, failure to work at least twenty Tactics problems every week, failure to move every day against jerryi) will disqualify a Club Member for Senior Status or other premium benefits.


Club Members who fail to maintain an active game against jerryi at all times may be dismissed from the Chess Club. It is each player's responsibility to play regularly against all Chess Club opponents. If you do not have an active game in progress against jerryi, it is your responsibility to challenge him to avoid dismissal. If you do not make regular moves against him, you will be subject to dismissal from all club activities.
