Utah Summer Games – June 19-20, 2009

Posted in Events on April 24th, 2009 by Nevada Chess

The Utah Summer Games will have two days of quick chess and fun chess variants on June 19-20 in Cedar City, which is only a couple of hours away from Las Vegas. There will be a 12-round, USCF rated quick (G/15) tournament, an unrated quick tournament, a Chess960 (Fischer Random Chess) tournament, and a Bughouse tournament. These four events should appeal especially to young chess players.

More information regarding the event can be found on the tournament website at http://www.utahsummergames.org/sports/chess.html.

Thanks, and we hope to see you there,

Southern Utah Chess Festival in Moab – Labor Day Weekend

Posted in Events on July 14th, 2008 by Nevada Chess

I would like to invite Nevada chess players to the Southern Utah Chess Festival in Moab, Utah, over Labor Day weekend. It should be a fun chess weekend, including a 6-round Swiss tournament, a beginner’s tournament, a Blindfold Chess tournament, a Chess960 (Fischer Random) tournament and a Bughouse tournament. It coincides with the Moab Music Festival, which is Utah’s premier chamber music and world-jazz festival. Full information is online at the Utah Chess website: http://www.utahchess.com/Event_Flyers/Southern_Utah_Chess_Festival_2008.doc.

Best regards,
