Blind Chess Copy, March 2016

They say work productivity plummets this week due to all this obsession over the top seeds and how they will do.  Corn, Soy, Sugarbeets, Sorghum…in these xeric soil conditions with a lack of snow melt?  Kansas, Oregon, Virginia, UNC…in a year where there was no one truly asserted themselves?  Andrew Tang, Jackson Wahl, Andrew Titus, Sammy Narayanan…you are all great, you will do just fine.

This weekend is the official State Scholastic for K-3, K-6, K-9, and K-12.  As it stands right now, the K-3 and K-6 sections have a tendency to be a little smaller than the other two sections.  One reason being is that a number of kids play up in a higher section.  There are other reasons too, but there are efforts that can be made to help clarify and not confuse you all.  Naturally, I would love to see a boost in the K-3 and K-6 sections, and hope to do so in future years.  Not all is lost on this year, and there is still time for everyone to sign up online.

For any questions about the MSCA State Scholastic, feel free to reach me.  This has been your Blind Chess Copy for March 2016.  Thank you for your time.

MSCA Vice President and Scholastic Coordinator.
