Winter/Spring Series

Our next set of tournaments has been finalized and posted in the right hand column of this page. Note that most locations are yet to be determined, for a variety of reasons.

The December 4 tournament differs from what you may have received at the NM Open. We found a new location, the Nancy Rodriguez Community Center near Agua Fria, and were able to lenghten the time control as a result.

There is a lot of good chess coming up this year, including the Memorial Open in January, the FIDE tournament featuring two grandmasters in February, the class championships and Pir Maleki in April, as well as the wired kings series. See nmchess.org for details!

We are looking forward to another fun season of chess, and hope you will join us!
