Chatter Schedule For New Players
ANOTHER BIG TURNOUT FOR THE ACTION QUADS
For the third straight Monday, we get 16 players,
enough for four quads. Robert Plunkett dropped in to headline
and win the top quad. Jackson Wahl, like Robert, won all
three games in the second section, with the Narayanan brothers
taking the bottom two. A welcome to Thorne Peter Dosdall, who
played his first rated tournament.
Thanks to Tom Fischer, who dropped off two grocery bags
of chess books on Saturday, including several of the very fine
opening surveys from New In Chess. We appreciate the
contribution to our library. In the same vein, our good friend
Mike Trettel mailed us the last three copies of New In Chess
June 22nd, Saturday
EXECISER QUAD NO. FIVE
Three games, played at a time control of game in an hour +
30 second increment. (Note this means you are required to
maintain a scoresheet for the entire game.) We divide into
groups of four by rating, and play round robins. Register from
9 – 9:50 AM. Entry fee is only $7 for club members, others
$12, which means no prize fund. Register from 9:00 to 9:50 AM.
Round times are 10, 1:30, and the last round starting ASAP.
This is an inexpensive event for fun and competition. State
(MSCA) and national (USCF) memberships required.
Note: Registration is from ten
to eleven, and we start after that. Dan Voje might have
told some of you it was a noon start, but you shouldn't
listen to silly old men.
Roseville Skating Oval. And just a reminder that it is
touch move, and illegal moves lose.
BIG TURNOUT FOR THE ACTION QUADS [6/12]
On each of the last two Monday's, we had 16 players
show up for Action Chess. This gives us four quads,
ranging from a top one of all experts, to a bottom quad
featuring beginners and lower rated players. Very nice to
see so many chess players, including an expert visitor
from Massachusetts, a father and son pair, and someone
playing in their first rated event. Only $12 for non-club
Michael Yang, Kevin Bu and Tremayne Talbot are planning a
chess camp at the Castle this summer. Look for details
soon. It is a rookie effort for them, but you can hardly
go wrong with such a fine group.
Wesley So, the young Grandmaster who is the featured
attraction at the next Noel Skelton Open, has a posting on
the front page of the USCF website. A big plus for this
Labor Day Weekend tournament is the excellent room rate
that Riaz Khan has gotten us, and mere $69 a night for the
Crown Plaza in Plymouth.
