The Spring 2013 Sarasota Chess Tournament was held on the anniversary of our first, on Sunday May 5, 2013. Congratulations to all of our participants for a great afternoon of chess competition. Full results are here. Photo gallery here.
The new venue, Pine View's Student Union, proved to be a great site. We were happy to see several new faces, including players from additional schools. 62 competitors faced each other in three evenly-divided sections K-9 (K-10) U1100, K-6 U650, and K-3 U500. We didn't have enough for a high school section, so the top 12th grader was asked to enjoy some unofficial games, while the two registered 10th graders were added into the K-9 (K-10) section.

Have a great summer everyone! Our next tournament will be after school is back in session, in late October or early November. If you are looking for summer chess tournaments, check our calendar for events in Tampa, St. Pete, and Orlando. For non-tournament play, join the Sarasota/Venice Chess Club players on some Saturdays. More info about area clubs here or tournaments here. If you know of some tournaments you'd like to see added to our calendar, please let us know.
