ICA celebrated National Chess Day by kicking-off its first Over-the-Board Tournament since Feb 2020!
Saturday, October 9, International Chess Academy celebrated National Chess Day by kicking-off its first, in-person, over-the-board tournament since the onset of the pandemic.
It was a very important and emotional day. This first of a NEW weekly series of tournaments titled Glen Rock Quads attracted 42 players and 10 sections, all competing for cash prizes and USCF rating advancement. It was a thrill to see so many students eager to be back in-person, playing their opponent face to face.
Thank you to everyone who participated. We look forward to seeing you back frequently on Saturdays this Fall and Winter!
