Southwest Washington High School Chess Championships, February 4

I was asked to share this information to RA Long students:

(Transportation to this event is NOT provided)

R.A. Long High School students are invited to compete at Chess Regionals, the Southwest Washington High School Chess Championships, February 4 at Centralia College. Beginners welcome. Details at http://northwestchess.info/swwa.html

Two non-profit groups (WHSCA and CEA*) are working together to organize and provide free entry to the first Southwest Washington High School Chess Championships.

Last March, Regional Qualifying Tournaments were approved to provide a path to Chess State for areas without a high school chess league, such as Cowlitz County. Normally teams qualify for State out of their high school chess league.

As a Regional Qualifier, it's limited to students in western Washington who reside south and west of King County. Winning high school teams qualify to play in the 57th annual Washington State High School Chess Team Championships, to be held March 3 and 4 at Stanwood High School.
