Storrs Center Chess Club - April 22 Tournament Report

STORRS CENTER FREE USCF CHESS # 2

Matthew Shirvell and Daniel Zhou tied for first place, each with perfect 3-0 scores. A 2-way tie for 3rd place resulted when Dmitri Efimov and James Grindley each finished 2-0.  A total of ten players competed in the 3 round swiss. Photos and results will appear on Connecticut Chess Magazine

Thanks to those who set up the tables and chairs and then stayed afterwards to put them back.  I wish I had more time to chat with my new friends, but I also played today.

We wish to thank the Nash-Zimmer Transportation Center  who graciously hosts our tournaments. We always strive to keep them happy with us.  We wish to thank the women who work the desk, Uzma and Carol, who always go far beyond their regular duties to help us.

You guys are tough, each of my three games were very difficult, I lost all 3.  Thanks to each one of you who helped to make this event a success.  

Let's do this again on  May 20    - Rob Roy

Storrs Center Chess Club  is lucky to have a free host for our free tournaments every month.  SCCC is lucky again to have a TD willing to work for free, but we do lack a funding source to pay our bills.

For me each tournament is 6 hours work onsite and 6 hours work before and after. I am not asking to be paid compensation, but I do need help to pay these bills.  

Jar for Voluntary Donations will be on directors table to collect the money we need to pay our expenses.  We have USCF fees and many other expenses.  Collecting $40 at each tournament will help us break even.

Some are not able to contribute, as some are students, or seniors, or other reason, and that's okay.  Never feel pressured; you will never be solicited by anyone.

If the jar looks sparse near the day's end some players who can afford it might donate a little more. Donors to the jar remain anonymous unless they tell me to acknowledge them by name for their gift.

Currently our program is $ 80 in the red.

Yours in Chess,

Rob Roy
Volunteer Director
