Congratulations. This is your personal invitation to play in the Schoolyear 2020-21 Virginia Scholastic Chess Championships. This invitation is based on your performance in one or more of the Virginia Qualification Tournaments, or your ranking among the state's top players in your grade group (e.g. K3, K5, K8 or K12). Hotel and other event information is available on the VA Chess website (www.vachess.org).
Our plan is to play this tournament in-person, as an "over-the-board" event. But, if COVID-19 mandates from the Government prohibit us from gathering to play in a safe environment, we will play this event online.
We ask you to "accept" or "decline" your invitation
by midnight Saturday, May 1st
This gives us time to invite another player if you are unable to attend the Championship event.
TO PLAY you must be a member of the US Chess Federation. You can check and renew your US Chess membership status at www.uschess.org,
There are NO MONETARY PRIZES for this tournament. Awards in all sections are Trophies or Plaques.
