In this time of social distancing, our in-person events have been suspended.
Meanwhile, this is a great time to play online with chess.com or chesskid.com. A couple of online groups have been created that you can join. For players above 1200, sign up at https://www.chess.com/club/sarasota-online-chess-club. For those under 1200, go to https://www.chess.com/club/sarasota-youth-chess-club. Mark Hamel with the Sarasota Youth Chess Club is a USCF-certified tournament director and will be looking into possibly arranging online tournaments.
