NM Scott Riester has won the 2012 Minnesota Class Championship master/expert section with an extremely impressive perfect score! I will post the link to the results once it’s available. Other players from Rochester were Matt Jensen, Dennis Mays and Maor Leker Locker.
We will have an officer meeting at 6:00 PM tomorrow night. Everyone is invited. Casual chess will also start at the same time.
Chess Teaching opportunity
I have been teaching beginners the game of chess at the Rochester Montessori School. I have been using Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition’s Academy by Josh Watskin. They are learning a little, but haven’t been putting it to good use yet. I would like to invite the Rochester Chess Club to meet at the school on a given club night and play some one on one with the students then a personalized post mortem with the student you play. We will be able to serve Pizza and drinks after.
I have 14 students, and would need that many club members. I would like to do this 12/4 or 12/11 @ 6:30. Please let me know of your interest. Contact me at: Prez25@live.com

RCC has a new vote chess game and will be starting an U1600 tournament. If you haven’t played any chess.com tournaments this would be a good one to start in. http://www.chess.com/groups/home/rochester-chess-club
