Here is the background story before I get into my actual question. There is a chess tournament in a city near mine, starting at 28th of August. The thing is, my parents won't allow me to go there. Not because they don't want to. We end our vacations in 29, so we spend one day less. I say, can I go alone there(I am with some friends and my FM trainer), they say no because they don't know them really well. When I say that dad or the entire family can come, they say no because of the vacations. I live in a country with not so many tournaments, and this is both cheap, and near, for it. Now that you understand my predicament, I want to know if all the trouble of convincing my parents is worth it; the tournament is open and I have a 1500 chess.com rating, so I was wondering if the chess tournament would be a good fit for my score?
On a side note can you guys think of any ways on how to convince them to let me go? Let me know how you convinced your parents to let you go somewhere, and what is the best score to go to a tournament if 1500 is not okay. Thank you very much!
