An invitation to our second chess event for women and girls only. Moms too! 

Dear Lady Chess Players,  Last year, 10 women and girls came out and participated in our first event. We considered it a success and are doing it again. This year we’ve upgraded the location to one more fitting for a queen, the eclectic and hip Hotel Indigo. They are also a sponsor this year along with JAXCC-Jacksonville Chess Club, Inc

Royal Treatment: First the location, Tapestry Park, is a top notch area with shopping and dining options along cobblestoned streets. Hotel Indigo was rated within the top 10 in Jacksonville. The area has shoppes, eateries, Tinseltown AMC theaters and dozens of restaurants are walking distance. You are going to love this location. Make plans to stay.

As we did last year, every player who registers will receive a free feminine cut t-shirt, but this year we’re upgrading to a long sleeve shirt.  Why long sleeve? Chess players often find tournament locations to be very cold and often wear sweaters or jackets. This year’s shirt will sport a new multi-colored logo on a black shirt. The hotel will be providing a catered lunch for players only.The prize fund this year has increased to $300.

Entry fee online: $35.  $45 at door (cash only). JAXCC member (-$5) discounts available and returning QC players need to email for special discount information. Rounds: 4 Round Swiss styleSections: Champions (G/45;d5) & Reserve (G/30;d5): Great for first timers, lower rated AND MOMS! Why not?, you play with your kids all the time…this is perfect for you.

Prizes:   $300 (b/30 players). Cash for top three in Champion section players  U1200 & Best Chess Mom. Trophies for Open section winner. Reserve players: trophy for top three. Location: Hotel Indigo 9840 Tapestry Park Circle, JAX 32246 Mention chess rate for discount. Time: 9 am Registration Opens / 9:45 Closes.
