The last Chess tournament in Winchester was decades ago. We hope to learn and improve the format for the future. In the future we will plan city-wide Open tournaments with cash prizes and quality trophies. All donations will be used to facilitate future chess activities in the Shenandoah Valley.
There are 18 slots remaining. The tournament will take 4-5 hours to complete. If you are able to commit to the finish, it would greatly help our ability to organize.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested.
