Great news! The Calchess Scholastic State Championship has returned to its over-the-board format for 2022. To create a safe playing environment, The “Super States” will be scheduled over 3 weekends (March 19-20, April 9-10, and April 23-24), instead of one just weekend. However, this Calchess tradition will once again be run at The Santa Clara Convention Center by Bay Area Chess so other than being spaced out over multiple weekends, everything else will seem familiar to the Northern California Scholastic Community.
I will be on hand for this exciting event and look forward to greeting familiar faces and making lots of new friends. For more information and to register your child, please visit: https://bayareachess.com/events/22/states/
