Dear Chess Parents and Coaches,
Thank you for signing your children up for the 2015 Susan Polgar Foundation’s National Open for Girls and Boys. Organizing a tournament of this magnitude is a challenge and was a phenomenal success because of the players, coaches and parents who chose to devote their weekend to scholastic chess. Our entire tournament staff is very grateful for the pleasure of working at the first FIDE World Youth Chess Championship qualifier ever held in California and watching your children enjoy being a part of history at the SPFNO. I am determined to make improvements in our performance and tournament structure each year we run this event. If you have any changes in particular you would like to see don’t hesitate to submit your idea for consideration by sending me an email. I look forward to reading your feedback and, of course, seeing you on February 26-28 at the return of the Susan Polgar Foundation’s National Open for Girls and Boys.
