June Summer Camp Monday 6/12/2023

Thank you for joining us today. Please remember to click on both the links for “JOIN TOURNAMENT” in your group assignments every day to join the tournaments. If you do not join them in advance then you cannot play. Be sure to pay attention after you finish your first game because the next round begins right after everyone has completed the first round.

If you missed the round or had any other issues I am running another tournament. It will begin @ 4:00 Pacific Time

All the chess problems listed are extra. You do not have to do all the problems in one day, or even do them at all. They are meant to fill in time if you happen to finish an assignment and are waiting for the next event to begin.
