2017 Summer Knights Chess Tournament

Starts: Aug 26, 2017 @ 9:00 AM


It's the first chess tournament of the year, and we are trying something new!

Although we are offering both a Rated section (for those with a USCF rating) and a Non-Rated section for beginning players, we will NOT issue a tournament report to the USCF.  So, this is an opportunity for everyone to relax, not worry about ratings, but play in their first chess tournament early in the school year to help prepare for the State Championship in Birmingham over Labor Day weekend.
