Happy Thanksgiving To All Chess Players!

I want to wish everyone out there a Happy Thanksgiving! 

Remember that our 2nd Tuesday Tournament on December 10th is our last tournament that will be a qualifier for our 2013 Club Championship. I've noticed that our Club Championship hasn't been updated for several months on our web link, but we will come up with the qualifiers after the 10th of December!

Again, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Chess players have a lot to be thankful for in Elizabethtown!  I’ve directed 12 Saturday tournaments in Elizabethtown this past year and we’ve had 56 different players to play from 6 different states with ratings from unrated to 2300+. We have had 7 different USCF Experts to play with us! I have one more tournament scheduled for 2013 and hope it’s another great one!
