May 2017 

The league concluded another exciting year with our Grand Prix tournament at Viera Charter School, thanks  to the help of Retinna Bell and the parent volunteers at VCS.

Thanks also to Matt Cobb who manned the scoring table all year, and to Andrew Lamoureux who operated the digital playing boards, and to Elfi Ousley for maintaining the website throughout the year.

The section winners were; Kavish Patel (K1), John Nipar (K3), Michael Uhlig (K6), Ethan Chapman (K12), Griffin Cobb (Scholastic Experts), and Vincent Stone (Scholastic Masters). Gemini won the Traveling Pawn.

After the tournament awards, we presented the Grand Prix awards, for cumulative points won during the season. The year end winners were; Ethan Boniello (K1), Varun Sriramineni (K3), Vaibhav Sriramineni (K6), Ethan Chapman (K12), Sam Matini (Scholastic Experts), and Vincent Stone (Scholastic Masters). Vincent also won Player of the Year. The Traveling Pawn was won the most times this year and becomes the property of Freedom 7.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in another great year of Brevard County Scholastic Chess, and we will see you again in the Fall!

 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!
