SC Class Championships THIS weekend!!

Around a dozen players dropped by to get in some casual chess before this weekend's SC Class Championships here in Columbia. With Six sections and only a $15 entry fee for Unrated (New) players this is a great tournament for everyone! Don't forget about the SC Blitz Championship Sat night!

Look for Twitter updates over the weekend and the Crosstable should be available.

Full details are at the end.

Due to scheduling around the Columbia weekend tournaments there will be no Quick Tournament. Next week Ashland XXII will begin. There will be two sections, Open & Amateur (U1505), Game 90. There are two changes:

1. The entry fee will be $2 for club members and $5 for non members. This is for all five rounds no matter if you play one or five.
