CPS Chess Championship March 10

Earlier this morning I spoke with Chicago Public Schools chess coordinator Tom Larson, who told me the CPS elementary school chess championship tournament will take place at King High School, 4445 South Drexel Ave., on March 10. Doors will open at 9:00; first round will start at 10:00. (Five rounds, I assume, if past is prologue.) A flyer with the details is forthcoming. When I get it I'll post it here and on the Ray School Chess Club Web site. This information often doesn't circulate as well as it should, so please tell any CPS chess coaches you know and anyone else who might be interested.

There's also information about the tournament on this thread at the ICA forum. If I get any additional information I will post it there.

Note to coaches: As you may know, there's a lot of paperwork to be prepared and submitted if you want to go to this tournament. If you haven't sent yours in yet, I'd suggest you call Tom Larson (773-553-3655; or get in touch with your area sports manager, if you know who that is.

Thanks Tom. I posted on my blog as well. Since we have to do the marketing/public relations for CPS Chess now... we better get started. :)
