March Madness and Scholasti-cology

Are you doing okay, have you recovered. Yeah, I know your bracket is busted.  Louisville, Duke, and the Wildcats were caught beneath a landslide of a champagne Villa-nova.
At Least There Is Chess At St. Kates this weekend.  Slowly walking down that playing hall, faster than a cannonball. Where are your kids as you turn and sigh…

No, this is not a prelude to the 7th running of the John Denver email, that content will arrive in a few days.  Patience.  There is still time to sign up,  Online registration is still open, and those that need a paper form for onsite registration click here.

At events like these, volunteers are always welcome, and probably needed this year.  If interested, please let me know

As a reminder this year, the K-3 and K-5 Championships will be a 1-day five round event. The K-8 Championship is a 2-day six round event.  The K-12 Championship will be seven rounds.  There is a Friday night option at the Chess Castle for the first round.  There is also another option where you can play the first two rounds at a quicker time control at St. Kates.  The last option is to take a half point bye for Round 1, and play the remaining six rounds at St. Kates under the established time controls.

I am likely to send out more information this week, leading up to the weekend.  Thank you for your time.
