New Hampshire Scholastic Chess
November 2021 UPDATE
Dear New Hampshire Scholastic Chess Players:
I am happy to announce the return of over the board Scholastic chess tournaments.
Our second tournament for the 2021-22 season will be played at the Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School on December 4th. A four round Swiss G30d5 in three sections. All students K-12 are welcome.
As you know, the pandemic had effectively halted over-the-board chess activity, as social distancing and chess tournaments generally don’t go hand-in-hand. However, the success of observing Covid protocols in schools (and other places) has led chess organizers to resume some chess events.
We live in a Covid world, meaning that anyone playing in this event (and frankly, any chess event) will be asked to abide by certain rules. There will be masks, hand-sanitizer, distanced tables.
Other upcoming tournaments:
January—–Holy Family Academy Manchester
March—–Mascenic Regional High School
