DCC Championship

2007-2008 Academic Year Championship for Doss Elementary School

The tournament was run exactly like one of the big scholastic events around Austin: it was an all-day 5-round USCF-rated Swiss-system tournament. We had lots of fun: the tournament games were in the library and everyone got to have fun downtime in the cafeteria between game rounds. We followed all USCF rules including touch-move and mandatory clocks when games appeared to be running close to the G/30 time limit. Although players were not required to take notation, it was strongly encouraged.


Prizes were awarded during the next club meeting to all players with a positive (3.0 or better) score as well trophies to our top three finishers:

  1. Jae-Hun Kim
  2. Ethan Schaffer
  3. Niko Weyland
Thank you to David Simmons and Wendy Hunter for providing a pizza lunch and healthy drinks for everyone.
