KCA Support for TD's/Organizers 
The KCA will reimburs TD's/Organizers who make their events a KCA event. This means you require KCA memberships for Kansas residents in their events. The KCA will reimburse TD's/Organizers $50 per event. You may use this three times during the calendar year. To collect, submit/email a copy of your USCF crosstable alongwith completed memberships forms to the KCA President. You must also submit the dues collected to any KSCA Officer. Players can also pay KCA dues online. Non-Kansas residents playing in your event are not required to join the KCA. The KCA Membership list is "live", so use it to determine if KCA memberships are current. Your event will be considered a "KCA Event" and submit it to the clearinghouse to be listed. You could also make it part of the Kansas Grand Chess Tour
