Saturday Chess Camp Cancelled

The chess camp for Saturday has been cancelled.  I’d like to apologize for the late notice.  We will post any information on future camps on the website.


Tonight was a great turnout at the club with 22 players playing in our team matches!  This continues our streak of 20+ players for I think 4 weeks now!!  We are off next week and will resume club on December 2nd.

“Where’s the snow?” G/30 d5 tomorrow!

Tomorrow Night: Named after the snow storm that keeps moving north.  Tomorrow night we have a G/30 d5 tournament starting at 6:45.  It’ll be 2 rounds and most likely groups of 4 by rating.  $1 for members and $2 for non-members.  Matt is the TD.

Bloomington Results:   The Rochester Chess Club had another nice showing at a Twin Cities event.  Barry Small scored 1.5/4 against all experts in the Open section!   In the U1800 Richard Huang tied for 4th place with 4/5!  Tom Brinkmann had 3/4 going into the final round and unfortunately lost to one of the co-champions.  David Kong also played in the event and scored 1/5.  If these players would like to share any of their games for the website please send them in PGN format.  Thanks and great job all!

G/10, d5 Tomorrow!

Tomorrow:   G/10; D5 Rated 4-5 Rds.   Starts at 7:00 PM.  $1 for members, $2 for non-members.  [Dennis]

The Bloomington Open is this weekend as well if you’re looking for a fun tournament with a large prize fund.
