A Successful Grant Grizzly Classic

The 3rd Annual Grant Grizzly Classic was a huge success! The tournament attracted 71 players from 18 schools in grades K through 11. This was the first OSCF tournament for more than one-half of these players. They will be excited to see their first rating, which is now available on the NWSRS (http://chess.ratingsnw.com/ratings.html) ratings website.  Thank you to everyone who participated and all the volunteers who made this year’s Grizzly Classic possible. We hope to see you next year!
