In connection with the Oregon Chess Federation & Portland Chess Club’s annual Oregon Open, held each year over Labor Day Weekend, we will be holding the Oregon Open Scholastic Tournament at the Lloyd Center Doubletree in Portland. While the full three-day Oregon Open tournament will be great for those of you who want the challenge of playing very long time controls against adult players (they play two games a day for three days; see here for more details), the shorter time controls of the scholastic section will be a great warmup for the new academic year of chess.
The event is a 4-round Swiss-paired event (time control G/45 d5) and will be held on Saturday, September 2, with the first round at 10am, so starting about an hour before the first round of the Oregon Open main event. Rounds will be held at 10, 11:45 (or ASAP), 1:45 and 3:30 (or ASAP), and should be done by 5:30pm. Depending on how many register, we may divide the group into two or three sections based on highest established USCF or NWSRS rating. The event will be NWSRS rated, though if a section consists of all USCF members, we may dual-rate the section as well. This is an 2018 OSCF State Championship Qualifier. We will have medals for even/plus scores and trophies for 1st-3rd places. We will also award one year (for 4.0 and 3.5 point winners) and 6-month (for 3.0 and 2.5 point winners) memberships to NW Chess, which includes a monthly subscription to the NW Chess magazine.
We’ve “sold out” this event! We look forward to seeing you at another tournament this fall.
Join experienced OSCF tournament directors Todd Anderson, Kathryn Schuff, and Rebecca Holt for a FREE training. Volunteer with us at the Oregon Open Scholastic Tournament on September 2 held at the Lloyd Center Doubletree in Portland on Labor Day weekend. We’ll show you how to run a tournament and serve as a “chess referee” during rounds. This training is appropriate for club coaches who would like to walk through a tournament day from start to finish and also for chess parents who would like to volunteer as “assistant tournament directors” at tournaments throughout the year.
Registration is full, but you’re still welcome to come hang with the “TDs” for a free training. For more information and to sign up, contact Rebecca Holt at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On July 8-9, the Portland Chess Club is running the 3rd Annual Rose City Sectionals tournament. This tournament is similar to a class championship with 200 point sections. It’s a great way for up and coming scholastic players to get some experience with longer time controls and to compete for good cash prizes and trophies by playing in a section with similarly rated players. The tournament is a 2018 OSCF State qualifier and is dual rated in US Chess and NWSRS. Due to space at the club facility, the tournament is limited to the first fifty players. Reserve a spot online and find more information about the event at pdxchess.org.
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) “12th Annual OSCF State Chess Championship” or (if the chess theme is obvious) “12th Annual OSCF State Championship”, 2) “May 5-6, 2017”, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Noon on Tuesday, April 11, 2017
