Students will be placed in groups of 4 with similar playing strength (or by age, if they are not in Compass chess classes). Each player will play 3 games. This is a great opportunity as a first-time tournament. More experienced players will enjoy an morning of chess with homeschool friends. The quad chess tournament is open to any homeschooled chess player, age 6-16.

The tournament will be held in Picnic Shelter A at Nottoway Park in Vienna right before our family picnic and field day. The tournaments will begin at 9:30 am . Students must arrive by 9:15 am to sign in and be placed in quad groups. The tournament will end approximately 12:30 pm, with a brief awards ceremony at the end. Participants will receive a certificate, and quad winners will receive medals. Individual games will not exceed 50 minutes, and Mr. Snow will determine the winner of an incomplete game.  As each game finishes, students will be asked to leave the area quietly until the next round is called. Students waiting between rounds can go to the playing fields or playground. Participants will be called back when it is time to begin the next round.  All chess sets will be provided. Special event fees are non-refundable.
