We Have Two Tournaments This Month!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday season. Looking back on last year, I think Tallahassee Chess Club accomplished a lot. We officially formed our club and elected officers. We’ve had regular monthly tournaments. We had an excellent one-day tournament. We are an affiliate of the US Chess Federation and the Florida Chess Association. More players are showing up at Black Dog Cafe on Saturdays and at Burger King on Wednesdays. Interest in chess around Tallahassee is really starting to take off! This is all thanks to our superb members. You are consistent in coming out to play chess regularly and willingly help others improve their game. 2010 was great and 2011 is going to be even better. So, we are kicking off this New Year right with two tournaments this month!
