1st Annual Tri-Valley Chess Tournament
Sunday, May 15, 2011 from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM (PDT)
The Thomas Hart Middle School Chess Club and Carden West are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Tri-Valley Chess Tournament!
The Thomas Hart Chess Club and Carden West School are pleased to sponsor the Tri-Valley's First Annual Chess Tournament. This chess tournament is open to any Tri-Valley student grades 1-8. This tournament is a "Swiss" style tournament, where players are progressively matched up with other players closer to their levels, and are ranked on a scoring system based on wins, losses and draws. So even if you lose your first match, you won't be eliminated from the competition.
This tournament is open to all levels - however, this is not a chess class, and a basic understanding of the rules of chess is expected.
Please note this is not a rated or USCF-sponsored event.
We will also be using basic tournament rules, including touch move and chess clocks. (Note: We will not be notating / recording these games; however players are welcome to record their own games if they wish)
Snacks, prizes and trophies will be provided.
Entry tickets are $7 plus processing in advance or $10 at the door, space permitting. Please note that we are limited to 40 entrants, so students will be entered on a first-come, first-served basis.
There will be two divisions:
Junior: Grades 1-5
Middle: Grades 6-8
This event is a great way to let your child compete in a friendly chess tournament and meet other local chess players. We hope to see you there!
We also would like to sincerely thank our sponsors Carden West School who is graciously donating the use of their facilities, and Chess In Education for their generous donation of chess boards and equipment for this event.
