January 2018


November 2017

The Turkey Bash at Temple Israel was a big success, with 70 students competing from 26 schools. Thanks to Kristine Stone and Sheryl Kromash for organizing the event, to Matt and Evan Cobb for doing the trophies, photography and scoring table, and to Vincent Stone who was the assistant TD and House Player. Section winners were Jack Rhoton (SM), Aron Cheng (SE), Noa Phan (K12), Davey Ward (K6). Shaan Prasad (K3), and Jason Zhang (K1). Top Team was Freedom 7, which once again took home the Traveling Pawn.

The Scholastic National Tournament will be at Disney World in December, so there will be no SCSC tournament next month, but will return to Pineapple Cove  in January.


Kristine Stonehas arranged the tournament sites for the first few months, but we still need playing sites for 2018. Please contact her with ideas.


Yours in chess,
Chris Bortzner

and have fun!

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

SPACE COAST SCHOLASTIC 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.
