The OMS Chess Club’s Awards Day

Adam Whitaker

The Springfield, MO Chess Club (SMCC) will have it’s first meeting since Covid on Friday May 7, 2021 at the Southside Senior Center at 7:30.

My hope is that we will have enough scholastic (k-12) players to start a scholastic ladder tournament and scholastic club championship.

Kids playing in the regular club ladder would still qualify for a scholastic championship by being among the top scholastic finishers.

Remember also that kids who are active at the Springfield, MO Chess Club, and don’t have a school club they can play for, can join the SMCC’s tournament team once the Southwest Missouri Scholastic Chess League starts up again.

I hope lots of scholastic players will join us as over-the-board chess gets up and running again.
