Upcoming Tournaments

We are pleased to announce the fall season for the Santa Fe Rooks Chess tournaments. We had a great time last year and look forward to another season of fun.

Desert Academy is in the middle of some changes, and we wish them well in their 2010-2011 school year. A special thanks to Paul Hedrick for helping make arrangements last season!

Our next tournament will be Saturday, August 21, at the Santa Fe Library Southside branch, at 6599 Jaguar Dr. It will be a three round quad round robin style, G/60 with 5 second delay. Rounds begin at 10:30; 1:00; 3:15.

Registration is from 10:00-10:25. No onsite entries. Please send entries to SF Rooks, POB 4764, SF NM 87502.

Entry fee is $10- first prize in each quad pays $30.

A note about the site: The Southside library is open from 10:00 until 6:00 on Saturday. We have to be out of the room by 5:45. There is a no food or drink policy at the library, so plan on a "tailgate" lunch or a quick trip over to Cerrillos or Airport Rd for carry out. The library in Santa Fe will only book 30 days ahead of time, so we are not able to confirm the location of future events beyond August.

However, we have our tentacles out, so mark your calendars for our other tentative fall dates, September 11 and October 23.
