March 2019

The Queen of Hearts tournament was a big success, thanks to the outstanding support of the parents and staff of Pineapple Cove Classical Academy.

We had 57 enthusiastic players competing, and playing some very exciting chess.

Winning their sections were; Benjamin Douglas (K1),Maleyna Ward (K3), Davey Ward (K6), Sakthivel Sabapathy (K12), Owen Deao (SE), and Ethan Tal (SM).

Top K3 Team was PCCA, and Top K6 Team was Freedom 7, which took home the Traveling Pawn once again.

The next tournament will be the March Mayhem, on March 30th at Holy Trinity (Lower Campus).

I look forward to seeing you all there!

Yours in chess,

Chris Bortzner

"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.


and have fun!

Welcome back to another great chess season at Space Coast Scholastic Chess!
