Goshen Chess for Scholastic Success (CFSS) Winter Tournament

Thank you for your interest in the 2017 Goshen CFSS Winter Chess tournament. The tournament will be held on December 9, 2017, at Goshen Middle School. (map) Entry is open to ALL students in grades K-12 and ALL adults. There are sections for players of all skill levels. (Do you need help deciding which section is right for you?) Entry is free for members of the Goshen CFSS program AND Goshen Community Schools students AND parents of those students. The entry fee is $10 for all others. There is a $2 discount for entering online.

For complete details and section descriptions, download the flier and entry form.

ATTENTION!! To keep our Novice sections (especially the youngest section) beginner friendly, we want to keep the use of clocks to a minimum. To that end, we are banning clocks (unless placed on a game by a director) and notation in the Novice K-3 section. In Novice 4-6, clocks will not be used (unless placed on a game by a director) and we reserve the right to require players to stop notating if their games are going long. Players in the oldest Novice group are free to notate and use clocks.

Players who want the full tournament experience (clocks and notation) are welcome to play in one of the rated sections, Open or Reserve.
