General Information

Welcome to the 8th Annual Winter Blitz!

This is a fast paced tournament! Designed for those who enjoy tournament style competition, but who don't want to commit 2 years to a tournament -- The DC Winter Blitz will begin in January, and have 2 rounds complete before summer!

Roster

See the list of entrants, change your status: Player Roster

Time Controls

The games will run 1 actual week per game year.

This allows a 10 year game to complete in 10 weeks, or a little over 2 months for a full round. Any games that run beyond 10 years will be allowed to play to completion -- no hard cutoffs

Spring deadlines will occur EVERY MONDAY. Fall deadlines will occur EVERY THURSDAY, 3 days later. Then 4 days roll around again to Monday. If you are not up for a 3-day / 4-day schedule, this tournament is not for you. Stay tuned for the DC Open, later in the year.

Retreats and/or Builds will always be due the day after results are out. That is Tuesday and/or Friday.

Important dates

Due to the late Thanksgiving and shortened holiday season, we're delaying the start by 1 week! All dates below are +7 days.
