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!
