Welcome back to another great chess season at Space Coast Scholastic Chess!
The October Brouhaha was a fun time for all, with plenty of exciting chess!
Top Players were; Encheng Zhang (K3), Michael Yang (K6), Danny Ward (Scholastic Experts), and Peyton Kromash (Scholastic Masters).
Top team (and the Traveling Pawn) went back to Freedom 7.
Thank you to Temple Israel for hosting again.
The next tournament, the Turkey Bash, will be November 17th at Holy Trinity Academy (Lower campus) 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.
