Frozen Chess Challenge It’s mid-winter; It’s cold outside. Get inside and let’s...play...chess! NOTE: This tournament is in a smaller venue and has a maximum enrollment of 80. Proceeds go to support the Our Savior Lutheran Youth Ministry porgram. Fee includes: Pizza, snacks, beverages, USCF Membership (if needed), filing of games with USCF, 6 rounds of play and all awards. • Team Trophy: Schools must have at least 4 players from their school in order to compete. We take the best 4 scores from each school and combine them. The school with the highest combined score will receive the TEAM STATE CHAMPION TROPHY. Other team trophies are given to 2nd-5th place. • Individual Tournament: Students will play 6 rounds against students of similar grade level (k-1, 2-3, 4-5). ° Swiss Play: Participants are matched against others of similar skill level and grade. If a player wins more games, they will play other players who have won more often as well. By the 6th round, we will have a clear champion. ° Medals & Trophies: Trophies are given out to 1st - 3rd place in each grade level category. Medals are given out based on your performance. Every student will get either a trophy or a medal by the end of the day. This is a USCF rated tournament and official USCF rules will apply. Many games use clocks. USCF tiebreaker rules will be used.
