January 3, 2020 – Game Changer Tournament and Workshop
Register your children for our Friday, January 3rd tournament! They will get more practice before the Triangle and NC Championships, and you will also help NC schools start chess clubs since the proceeds from this event will help support our Game Changer Program. You can play, too, since it is a “parents play free” event.
Then stay for our free workshop where experienced chess club organizers will answer your questions about starting a chess club at your child’s school. It will begin at noon immediately following the tournament.
November 27, 2019 – Fast Chess Tournaments
Since most of the schools in our Game Changer program were closed or released early on this day, we scheduled our first “virtual” events – two Fast Chess tournaments on ChessKid.com. Students from 3 different schools played in the 4-round tournament at 9 am and the 5-round tournament at 3 pm.
November 11, 2019 – Game Changer Tournament
34 students and 3 parents had fun playing in our Game Changer tournament on Veterans Day at the Triangle Chess Center while Wake, Durham, and Orange County schools were out. They each got to play 3 or more rated games, and proceeds from this event supported our Game Changer Program helping NC schools start chess clubs.
October 9, 2019 – Chess Moms Play Chess, Too
