In order to do this kind of tournament, we need to prepare the game pairings in advance. If you know that your child will be absent or needs to leave Chess club before 4:10, please let us know, so that we can plan accordingly.
Next Saturday, February 11th, there is a state qualifying tournament at Heritage Christian Academy in Bothell. So far we have 8 students signed up to represent Frank Love at this tournament. It should be a lot of fun and with so many people participating on the Frank Love Chess Team, we stand a good chance of earning a great team score. You can sign up at www.chess4life.com . Then click on tournaments on the left. If you questions, feel free to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
