Indiana State Chess Association

A Message From The President

To all Indiana chess players!. I hope to see many of you at the 32nd Class Champs in Indy Aug.1-2. We have 20 something advance entries so far. This tnmt launches a STRING of ISCA tnmts we will have the rest of the year. There is no ISCA tnmt in September, but ISCA Membership Director Mat Leach will have the South Bend Chess Club tnmt on Sept 12th. Then on October 4th the Indiana State Team Championships will be held in Terre Haute. Grab 3 friends and form a team! There will be 2 sections and these things are always a lot of fun. ISCA is supporting this tnmt with $500  more in prizes! On November 6-8, the State Championships will also be in Indy. We have been able to increase the Prize Fund for the Class and the State tnmts because donations have paid for the site rental for both tnmts. I have just sent to Board Members a proposal that Bob Banta from the Deadwood Chess Club in Indy and I worked up to have another ISCA tnmt Dec. 5th at the Church of the Nativity on Lantern Rd. in Indy also, the Deadwood Chess Club Open. Bob is paying for the site rental/expenses which means we can increase the money for prizes. This has not been approved by the Board yet, however.
I hope you will decide to play in several if not all of these upcoming tnmts. As former Mayor Benjamin Bosse of Evamsville said "When everybody boosts, everybody wins!"
