Scholastic or Blitz Event: Choose one on Saturday, April 1st.

This Saturday at Ramada there are two separate events. Both are $20 General entry (-$5 for JAXCC members). 

Please carefully read the start times below:

 
9am : Scholastic Series III Event Check-in  
9:30 Round 1 start w/4 rounds of play
2pm expected end time.
 
11:30: Blitz G/5 check-in.  
Noon Round 1 start. 
2:30 expected end time. $300 prize fund in 6 dbl rounds of play. 
 
Both events can be found at www.chessregister.com. Online registration closes at 11p for both events. Walk-ups on Saturday are welcome. All players must be USCF members. Expired or new can join/renew on site. 

New Location: Tuesday Night Quick Rated

Starting (Tuesday 3/28) we will begin meeting at Starbuck 11441 San Jose and Mandarin Road. For our weekly Quick Rated Chess Tuesdays. 
 
 
It is across the street from the Belgium Café, but can accommodate more players. Since moving to Mandarin we’ve had several nights of 13 or more players. Those kind of numbers actually overwhelm the cozy café and although we are always careful to leave tables for patrons, Starbucks has more tables and stays open until 10. This may allow us to get in the 4th game more often.
 
Please come out and join us. Round 1 starts at 6:45p.
 
Remember, this event is USCF Quick rated and requires all players to be active members that are not expired.

Per our published training schedule there is no training today. Classes will resume next Sunday February 19th at 1:30. Email us at jaxchessclub@gmail.com with any questions.

We’ve had a great response to this event and we’ve closed the online registration at 34 players (19 players in the OPEN/Reserve & 15 scholastic). We have about 12 more scholastics coming from our training program who are preregistered. Therefore, we expect close to 50 players based upon those who have asked to be listed and will register in the morning. Come early so we can keep to our schedule. Remember only cash or check tomorrow. Check in: 8:30 for scholastics and 9:30 for OPEN/Reserve event.
