Full Calendar in August!!

The Columbia Open is only TWO weeks away! You can enter at the club on Thursday evenings or online entry is available and the current entry list can be found HERE .

Although the club is in a dead time for rated play right now, there is a full slate of events for August starting this weekend with the The Charlotte City Championship Aug 3 & 4. The prize fund for this event has been increased to $2,150 thanks to a sponsor! Note that the Round 4 on Sunday does not start until 12:15. This late start makes it possible to commute from Columbia and save the hotel expense if you want.

Next up is a Chess Camp in Chapin for beginning players Aug 5 -8 and the Make a Difference 3 tournament is in Charleston on Aug 10.

An Intermediate Chess Camp for U1500 players is in Chapin Aug 12-15 which is a great chance to get ready for the Columbia Open Aug 16-18.

The Fourth Round of the Lowry Grand Prix Series is Aug 24 in Evans, GA. If Charlotte is closer to you, the Knights Templar V is also on Aug 24.

The month of August finishes with one of the Southeast's premier events, the Carolinas Chess Festival which consists of the U.S. Masters and the North Carolina Open in Greensboro, NC.

Plenty of choices to get out and play in August no matter where you live or what level player you are. Get out and support your local events!
