*Registration is closed for the Presidents’ Weekend Tournament*
We want you for the SEVENTH ANNUAL Presidents’ Weekend Tournament! Last year, over 170 players came to Gray Middle School in SW Portland for a great day of chess and fabulous prizes. The Commanders-in-Chief have ordered up another excellent set of trophies and Presidential prizes for Saturday, February 16th, and we hope you will join us for a great day.
More details are available here. We look forward to seeing you at Robert Gray Middle School in SW Portland!
Every year, our players walk away from Seaside with fantastic t-shirts produced on-site by our vendor, Northwest Designs. Each year, the great art on the t-shirt is designed by one of our players. We’re looking for the T-shirt design that will be featured on this year’s shirts. If you have the selected design, you will win a free entry to the tournament ($35 value), a free T-shirt ($20-25 value), and $75! If you’re the first runner up, your design will be featured on the front of the State Championship Program. The deadline is coming quickly, though, so get your pencils, pens, and crayons sharpened, and your creative energies flowing!
T-Shirt Design Contest
Parents or adults affiliated with tournament attendees may submit designs, but preference for designs will be given to NSWRS-rated players and their siblings (and the award remains the same)! All entries will become property of OSCF and will not be returned. The design must contain three phrases: 1) “14th Annual OSCF State Chess Championship” or (if the chess theme is obvious) “14th Annual OSCF State Championship”, 2) “April 12-13, 2019”, and 3) “Seaside, Oregon”.
There is no limit on colors for submissions, although the final t-shirt design may be limited in production and altered as necessary for t-shirt production. Shirts will be produced on demand, on site, and on the customer’s choice of shirt color. All submissions must be submitted either by dropping them with an OSCF representative at an OSCF qualifying tournament or electronically as an email attachment, along with a T-shirt Design Contest Application Form, to email@example.com.
Deadline: Noon on Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Dear Chess Parents and Players,
I have spoken with the School District Asst. Superintendent and Tigard-Tualatin is planning on cancelling ALL events this Saturday due to the forecast of snow. It is with great sadness that I have to cancel our Metzger Tournament. I hope to reschedule so please stay tuned. I will refund those that have pre-paid.
Again, NO CHESS TOURNAMENT AT METZGER Feb. 9th.
Unfortunately, these Quads have been cancelled due to inclement weather.
