3rd Annual Clackamas K-12 Open on October 25

The third Annual Clackamas K-12 Open will be held on October 25th at Clackamas High School.  This event will feature at least four grade based sections.  (They actually had 5 sections (one for 5th grade last year, and split the high school section the first year) for each of the first two years.)  Once again the tournament will feature quality chess equipment (Wood and Plastic Chess Sets, roll-up boards and Chess Clocks) from Legend Products as awards for top finishers in each of the sections.  Additionally, anyone with a plus score (3 or more points) will receive a medallion.

The tournament is also a team event with Trophies to the top two Elementary, Middle, and High Schools.  The number of players from one school is not limited but only the top four scorers will be counted toward the team total.

In addition to the great chess equipment, medallions, and trophies the tournament also awards door prizes.  Last year more than 80 individuals were awarded a door prize donated by local businesses.  This year is shaping up very good with the total door prizes exceeding $2,000.

Food and drink items will be provided by one of Clackamas’s student clubs, and will be open during most of the tournament for your refreshment.

Check in from 8:15-8:45 am. First round at 9 am.
