 ** Update at 2:45pm Feb. 5th: Phil Smith at the USCF informed me that the USCF web server experienced a catastrophic failure, and the system had to be restored from backups. There still may be some permissions issues which are being investigated. The TD/Affiliate area is now working, and all pending USCF memberships have been processed. The Wed. CCCR and Sat. Chess Center results have also been processed. The FIDE results and SLWC weekend tournaments will be rated shortly.

** Update at 1:15pm Feb. 4th: The main web site (uschess.org) is working, but the chess club affiliate area is still down... still cannot process any tournaments/memberships.

** NOTICE: The uschess.org web site has been down for most of Sunday and is still down as of 9am Tuesday, Feb. 4th 2014. As a result of this, the GAME RESULTS and USCF memberships have not yet been submitted for CCCR and for the Chess Center. We hope to submit the games ASAP when the USCF web site is working again. **
