April 2019

The March Mayhem tournament was a success thanks to the Parents of the host school, Holy Trinity Academy, which once again provided a wonderful chess tournament site for kids and parents.

Thanks also to Vincent Stone, for being the Assistant TD, as he has done all year.

Although the air show was a bit of a distraction, the level of play remained very high.

Winning their sections were; Benjamin Douglas (K1), Arham Shah (K3),Davey Ward (K6), Pranav Ponnusamy (K12), Hawkin Johnston (SE) and Peyton Kromash (SM).

Top teams in K3 and K6 were both Freedom 7, which took back the Traveling Pawn again as Top School.

The final tournament of the year will be April 13 at Pineapple Cove Classical Academy. See you 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!
