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 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.

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.
