Casual Night - Lee Hyder THIS weekend!

Around a dozen players came out for some "Stress Free" chess and some last minute preparation for the Lee Hyder Memorial this weekend here in Columbia.

Over a dozen Cola Club members are entered in this weekend's event. If you can't play, drop by and check out the action. Casual chess will be played in the lobby and I'm sure a few players will drop by the Bulldog in between rounds. This should be the largest LHM to date and is the first tournament in the Columbia Grand Slam series. There will be Twitter updates throughout the weekend. Registration is Friday from 5:00-6:45 and Sat from 8:30-9:15.

Here are the other three local weekend tournaments:

South Carolina Class & Blitz Championships July 9-10
The Columbia Open Aug 19-21
72nd South Carolina Championships Oct 14-16

Check the USCF TLA section for full tournament listings.

Next week, Thurs May 26, is Ashland Quick XXV. Come out and fill your need for speed! These games only affect your Quick Rating.
