Thanks to everyone who attended the 13th Annual OSCF State Chess Championship last weekend, and a particular thanks to all the volunteers — parents and coaches of players, as well as last year’s OSCF Board, who helped make the event a great success.
In the end, we had 338 players participate in the main event (38 Primary, 137 Elementary, 102 Middle School, and 61 high School). On Friday evening, we had 128 players in the blitz tournament, and 182 players (91 teams) playing bughouse. We had 26 players in our Friends and Family tournament.

CHESS FOR SUCCESS presents the Vangie Shaw Memorial Girls Play Chess Tournament–an open tournament for all K-8 aged girls. There will be sections formed if the number of entries are sufficient. Participants play five rounds that are roughly one hour each. The end time depends on how quickly the rounds go. Dress up and receive a chess necklace! T-shirts are available for purchase.
Note: this tournament is NOT rated with NWSRS and therefore is NOT a OSCF State Championship qualifier–but it is a fun chess tournament for K-8 girls!
