The Virginia Chess Federation is extermely pleased to host the 2024 State Scholastic Chess Championships in Roanoke, VA, at William Fleming High School.
While your sons, daughters, and players are participating in the Main tournament, why not play some chess on your own? The Parents & Friends (P&F) Tournament is your chance to do so.
We usually have about 20-25 players.
Round 1 of the P&F tournament starts at 12:45pm, 15-minutes after your players' Round 2 games begin in the Main tournament. The next rounds in the P&F start 15-minutes after Rounds 3, 4, and 5 of the Main tournament. This means you can play up to 4 rounds of rated chess!!
Prizes are Gift Certificates to our on-site Bookstore, with amounts determined by the number of players who play in the P&F. Gift Certificates CANNOT be exchanged for cash.
To play in the P&F event, you need to be the parent or friend of a player in the tournament. Scholastic or College-age players cannot play in this side event, it is for adults only.
