June was a very busy month for Las Vegas chess this year, with 19 (!) events listed in USChess.org, 10 of which took place at the International Chess Festival between June 24th and June 26th. There are far too many crosstables of the events in that list to include a worthy summary of results in this bulletin, except to say the events were well attended, with 666 players in the 2016 edition of the National Open, 264 in the International Youth Championship, 149 in the Youth Trophy Tournament and 108 in the Walter Browne Memorial Blitz competition.
There were 9 other smaller June events in and around Las Vegas, as well as 10 June events in Reno, including an 86 player ChessKidz Tournament with sections for ages 4-7, 8-9 and 10+, run by Chief TD Vernon Young. I’ll bet that was really fun for everyone!
If any of your chess friends complain about not receiving the April issue of this bulletin, you may tell them that that was the last Nevada Chess Bulletin mailed to all paid members, except for the January issue which will continue to include a ballot for paid up members to vote in the year’s election of officers. If they don’t have easy access to the internet and wish to have this bulletin mailed to them, they should indicate that on the membership form, a copy of which they might obtain from their local club, and send it to the editor at the address on the form. Or get ye on the internet, where all the info is in its own neat category on our website, NevadaChess.org.
