I don't think that's right. Asking for a club to be listed on the entry form is because of how grading was done in the olden days. In the days before grading codes, having many people with the same name needed some form of disambiguation, and having the player's club was vital. Many congresses still ask for a club on the entry form, but there's no real need for it anymore. I use it just because people like the information.MSoszynski wrote:And entering the name of one's club on the entry form is neither an "abuse" nor a request; for one thing, it's an indication to the organisers of how to increase players' enjoyment of the tournament, when that's possible.
Most graders presumably still supply clubs when supplying grading files for congresses, but when you think about it, you really shouldn't be. You should only supply a club for completely new players to the system.
