Utah Chess Players started this petition to UCA Board

Utah tournaments are less enjoyable for the higher rated players when much lower rated players are allowed to play in the open section. It does not make sense for a 2100 player to have to play against a 600 player, yet with the current system this is not only possible, but has happened. We believe regulating the open sections to a certain rating (or paying an extra fee to “play up” if you don’t meet the base rating criteria) will not only make the tournaments more enjoyable for both the higher and lower rated players, but will also attract more higher rated players that would otherwise opt not to play for fear of being paired against someone much lower and essentially “wasting” their time.
