Welcome back to another great chess season at Space Coast Scholastic Chess!
The March tournament at Temple Israel was a big success, with 88 students competing in five sections.
Congratulations to everyone who participated. The Section winners were; Vincent Stone (SM), Surina Venkat (SE), George Rhoton (K6), John Nipar (K3), and Maleyna Ward (K1).
The Top Team was Indialantic, which took home the Traveling Pawn.
In addition to the great support from the Temple, Andrew Lamoureux kept both digital chess boards going each round, and Matt Cobb recorded all of the results and took the Awards photos.
Thanks also to Sajan Gutta for being the Assistant TD, and to Evan Cobb for assembling the trophies and handing them out.
The next Tournament will be April 22 at the Holy Trinity lower Campus on Strawbridge Ave in Melbourne. See you there!
Yours in chess,
"First Tournament is free for Brevard County students".
Back by popular demand! In an effort to encourage new players to participate in tournaments, Brevard County students who are unrated will not have to pay their first tournament fee (typically $20).
However, you will still need to buy a USCF membership at the USCF website. The USCF membership is good for one year.
All players must register by the Friday 7:00 PM before the tournament to play in the first round. Walk-ins will get a first round bye.
