This past weekend I was in attendance for the historic 2022-23 CalChess Scholastic State Championship and there was no place I rather be! Bay Area Chess put on a great tournament and as the CalChess Scholastic Coordinator I had the pleasure to review dozens of chess games and saying “hi” to hundreds of friends. Being the Editor for the CalChess Journal also gives me special access to photograph all the future stars of chess. Of course, not all the photographs will be used in the Spring edition of The CalChess Journal so I am sharing all the magic moments I captured from the CalChess K-5 Scholastic State Championship in the photo gallery below. Also, consider encouraging your child to submit their favorite chess games from the event to DailyChessMusings@gmail.com for possible inclusion in the CalChess Journal’s official coverage of the 2022-23 CalChess Scholastic Championships. Together we can make The CalChess Journal the best regional chess magazine in the United States!
