Chess Tournaments: Tampa June 27 & July 11

Congratulations to Benjamin Freeman for his resounding victory at the June 13 tournament!

There is no doubt we continue to show significant improvement at our recent tournaments. From my years of experience, we all need to attend monthly tournaments to achieve the aim and justify the investment we all have placed in our players. Most all of you have very gifted children whose talent should be cultivated. We will try to begin hosting tournaments each month on a Saturday, starting in August. We are sure attendance will improve and need to guarantee this by advertising in Chess Life for Kids & Chess Life. In the interim through the summer, we may get enormous benefit by invading Coach Taylor's tournaments as a team (you must name your school, except homeschoolers who may enter as Hoffer's Chess Academy). We are also formulating the parameters for Coach's Team Matches. The next tournaments are June  27 & July 11 (Sundays) @ 1 PM. I feel we may sacrifice one Sunday a month for our kids, at least until football season! There is also an Open section in which parents may play, too.

These tournaments are held at the First Church of God, 2202 E Busch Blvd, Tampa 33612.

Entry Fees are $20 per tournament (members cost) & $25 for Non-Members.

Open (all ages), Over 800 & Under 800 (scholastic only). Cash prizes & trophies.

Please let me know if you will be available for the next tournament on June 27 at 1 PM.

Warmest regards,

Coach Mike
