Both players will receive a free entry to a regular club tournament.

Game of the month #2 voting will begin soon so submit your games to the club database.

The Annual Border Battle took place this past weekend in Lake Norman, NC.
The featured match was between our Phillipp Lamby and NC Champion and full time chess coach Craig Jones. The champions battled to a even 2-2 but SC fought valiantly but succumbed to the on-slought of the NC players.
Live Games were broadcast and full recaps can be found at schess.org and ncchess.org.

This Saturday, March 26th there is a Reverse Angle in Charlotte, NC. If you have never been to a Reverse Angle its a great 1 day tournament with plenty of good competition to hone your game.

Thursday March 24th is the final round of the Club Championship. Awards will be given that night. Come out and have some fun.
