July 18 Quads (in Honor of International Chess Day)

Greetings players, and happy international chess day! Thank you for playing in our special event, we're glad you put as much time into chess as some of us do! With a record 64 players (happened to be the same # of squares on the chessboard!), our biggest turnout yet, we were happy to see that even with a higher turnout, things still ran relatively smoothly and everyone was able to have a competitive tournament! Thank you all for following procedure!

 

We tried to make this tournament as special as possible with lowered entry fees, we hope you appreciate the gesture and find your own way to contribute back to our game. Whether it be by playing, teaching, or spreading your passion, we believe each chess player has something to offer!

 

With a game as age-old as chess is, it is always nice to see new blood entering the scene! If you would like to share your story of what got you into the game, reply to this email and we'll feature some in our report!
