The CFC Regular Chess Post – March 29/12 - Playing Up at the CYCC - CFC Policy Statement.

By CFC Youth Coordinator, Patrick McDonald on Feb. 13, 2012:

I am willing to state the rule that I will apply until over-ruled by some authority:

If someone wants to play in an age category older than the one they qualify for, they can do so.

BUT: if they win a spot in a certain age category to play at the WYCC, that is the age category that we are willing to send them to the WYCC in.
