April 21 - Grade Level

Hi All,
  Now's the time to start registering for Grade Level or at least start thinking if you'll be attending.

 What's nice is this a WSCF Tournament so anyone that is in the same grade can play as a Club (MSCC).
 Hope to see you there!

State Championships

Wisconsin Scholastic Chess Championship
UW Oshkosh campus

The MSCC brought a big group of 17 players to the UW Oshkosh campus this year for what has become our annual highlight of the chess year.  It was a fun, super-sized, and well-run event with 430 players from around the state!

We were so proud of how our players performed and conducted themselves this weekend - playing some really good matches in the K5, K8 and Varsity sections.

Results will be posted at  http://wischolasticchesschampionship.blogspot.com/ by Thursday.

Pizza Party 3/14/18 & Chess Apparel

Hi All,
 Next week Wednesday (March 14), we'll be having a pizza party from 6-6:30 pm. We ask for a donation for $5/per person & that everyone starts out w/2 slices to make sure there's enough pizza for everyone. This is open to the chess players & their families. If anyone would like to bring something,  please let me know.
  Also, I have some "extra" apparel that are both adults & children sizes. Some are brand new while others are "gently used". I will have the apparel at the pizza party as well.

Tournaments

Hi All,
 It looks like our chess season is winding down but here's a few tournaments to put on your calendar.

March 17 & March 18 - State (Oshkosh)

March 24 - Elmwood (New Berlin)

April 21 - WSCF Grade Level (UWM Student Union)

That's it for the club but I'd like to tell you about another tournament that happens in May. It's called Ice Harbor & is held in Dubuque, Iowa. Not that far of a drive - a nice weekend getaway. We've been going for the past three or four years.

The tickets for the Resort include wristbands for the Indoor Water Park & there's a game room. Plus there's a museum down the block.

If my recollection serves me correctly, if there's 3 or more in a section, we could play as "MSCC".

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.

ASA Clark & Golda Meir

ASA Clark & Golda Meir 

There were two tournaments to choose from this week, both ASA Clark school in Pewaukee and Gold Meir in Milwaukee.  Both were large tournaments and our MSCC players made us proud!

ASA Clark - USCF rated tournament run by the IAC 
K3
  • Anthony has been on fire these last two tournaments and again went undefeated at 5-0, finishing 2nd place only because of tie breakers that didn't go his way.  
  • Riahn played in his first full tournament and had a nice win and a draw.
K6
  • Logan led the way with a 4 win day and 5th place!  Andy and Luke both had 3-1/2 and Luke earned his red band!  Rishi is Mr. Consistent and had a solid 3 win day.
  • Together the Lake Denoon team finished in 3rd place!
K12
  • Will led the way with 3 wins and a 2nd place finish.  Adam, Alyssa and Aaron were all right behind and together the team took home a 1st place team trophy!
  • Steven was the only member from Bay Lane but also had a good day with 2-1/2 out of 4 wins.

Golda Meir - WSCF rated
  • Josh played in the U800 K12 section and finished with a solid 3 wins and 11th place finish.  Logan, new to the club and in his first tournament played in the U500 K5 section and had some nice games -  we're hoping he'll join future tournaments as well!
Congratulations to all for some well played games and good sportsmanship the whole day.  You represent the MSCC very well!
