Summer Chess

Hopefully everyone is settled into their summer routine.  Although the summer tournament schedule is a little thinner than during the high winter and early spring season, there are still many opportunities to fit chess into your student’s busy summer.  Here are some upcoming options — remember you can always check the NWSRS calendar for updated information (and for details on the below events).

July 6: Tigard Grange Quads, 5:30pm. Easy-to-reach quads sponsored by OSCF Treasurer Steve Cousineau.
