Chess cancelled

Chess Cancelled this week.

Chesskid Tournament at 6:30!

Stay warm!

MSCC Apparel Order due Feb 6

Hi All,
 I know there's a couple orders "lingering". With the goofy weather we've been having, I'll extend the order deadline to Wednesday, February 6.
  If you have any questions or would like an order form, please let me know.

Wednesday's Class, Jan 30

Hi Chess Parents,

We're planning ahead for another wild weather week - snow early and bitter cold mid-week.

Safety first -  If school is closed on Wednesday due to cold, then chess will be cancelled too.  If school is open, then we'll play chess as usual.  If it's clear that school is open but after school activities are cancelled, then we will follow suit and cancel too.

Regardless, I will send out another email by mid-afternoon Wednesday to let you know, so please check emails.  The Muskegochess.com site will also be updated if we cancel.

If we do cancel, we will hold another chesskid.com tournament starting at 6:30 sharp!

Stay warm!
Coach Dan

Golda Meir Tournament Results  

On Saturday the MSCC brought a small but determined team to Golda Meir in Milwaukee, run by the WSCF.  Over 140 players were in attendance and we had a very fun day!  Thank you to Coach Andy for going over many games with our players!


  • Charlie had some good battles and finished 2.5/5 and Lexi had a real break-out day winning all 5 matches and taking home the first place trophy!
  • Luke had some good battles in this section, taking 3.5/5.  He also proved you can "have your cake and eat it too" by starting the day early with two basketball games and then joining us just in time for round 2!
  • Lucas and Rishi had some hard fought matches in this section, taking 2.5/5 and 3/5 wins respectively.
We did not bring enough players to field competitive teams, so hopefully we can do that at our next tournament - Asa Clark Pirate Open in Pewaukee on Feb 9th, run by IAC.   Sign up now!

Wednesday (Jan 22)'s Class is Cancelled

Hi All,

In the name of safety, we're going to cancel the chess class for tomorrow, Wednesday.  It sounds like it will be very messy tonight and tomorrow.

However, we WILL instead have an online tournament at chesskid.com!  We will set one up for the normal start time of 6:30, and i'll send more details about that and a reminder of how to join the tournament.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Coach Dan
P.S. Apparel Order will be due next Wednesday, Jan 30. - Leah

St Charles

St. Charles Open results

The MSCC brought 10 players to St Charles in Hartland, our first time there, for a tournament that was run by the IAC (Coach Andy) and we had a great day!

K6 unrated (5 rounds, G30)
  • Logan and Owen did a great job, both learning and taking notation seriously which paid off with some nice wins.  Owen lead the way with 3 out of 5 wins!
K6 rated (5 rounds, G30)
  • There were no teams because of differing schools, but Anthony, Josh, Luke and Rishi played some really nice games.  All had at least two wins -  Rishi finished in 8th place and Anthony placed 6th!
K12 rated (4 rounds, G45)
  • A tough section as usual -  Steven had a solid day with 2 out of 4 wins.  Alyssa finished in 8th place (2.5 pts), Noah finished 7th (2.5 pts) and Will took 2nd place (3.5 pts) - together they took the 2nd place team!
Nice job everyone!  

Next up will be Golda Meir on Jan 26th (WSCF) and Asa Clark on Feb 9th (USCF / IAC)
