Welcome back to another great chess season at Space Coast Scholastic Chess!
"First Tournament is only $5 for Brevard County students".
In an effort to encourage new players to participate in tournaments, Brevard County students who are unrated will not have to pay full price for their first tournament fee.
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 and pay $5 more.
The SCSC league kicked off our 19th season at Temple Israel in Viera, on Saturday September 21st.
A great time was had by all who intended, including 17 first time players. Congratulations to our section winners; Nevaan Shah (K1), Arham Shah (K3), Encheng Zhang (K6), Michael Yang (K12), Kyle Knapp (Scholastic Experts), and Michael Uhlig (Scholastic Masters).
Top Team, and winner of the Traveling Pawn was Freedom 7.
Thanks to the parents who organized the concession stand, and to Vincent Stone for being the Assistant TD and holding a 10 board Simultaneous Exhibition.
The next tournament will be October 26th at Holy Trinity Academy (Lower Campus) in Melbourne. I hope to see you all there!
Yours in chess,
