Casual Night

Club members packed out the building on Thursday for a night of stress free chess.  Players rotated freely among the 6 active boards throughout the night while catching up with old friends and meeting new members.  Lots of noise, laughter and fun was had on the bughouse board as Sam did his best to carry Adam against Chris and Gil.

This week(Feb 19th) is a Themed Quick Night.  4 round G15/d3.  The themed opening will be announced shortly before the round. No Entry Fee.  TD Jordan Anderson.

On February 26th the 2015 Club Championship begins.  Last year's Club Champion Ben Caiello will have his work cut out for him as he defends against a strong club line-up this year.  The line-up includes the club's newest top-rated member NM Sam Copeland, past club champions and club veterans Keith Eubanks and James MacDougall, as well as the club's several rising stars including Brandon Jordan and Ian Bell.  The Under trophy will also be up for grabs as the club has seen a lot of new members join its ranks over the last year.  Good luck to everyone who comes out to participate!

The entry-fee for the Club Championship is $10 for club Members(can join onsite) and begins 2/26/2015 through 3/26/2015.  One 1/2 point bye is allowed in any round except the final fifth round.  Be sure to text/call Daniel Smith or Jordan Anderson the night of to confirm entry as registration ends at 7:15.
