Notes from the Event Director

Dear Chess Families, 

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the organizers of the 2020 WSECC have voted to approve the switch from an in person event in Tacoma to an online event that will be hosted on chesskid.com! In the next 2 weeks, the organizers will be working closely with the chesskid.com team to set up and develop what will be a unique and fun chess event, and potentially the first ever Elementary State championship to be held online!  While the final details will be announced as soon as they are available, there are several details that are already decided:

-The event will still be held on May 2nd, 2020, with the first round starting at 9am, and the last round starting by 3pm.

-NWSRS Ratings will be used for the event.

-No Qualification necessary! Since many of our events were unable to occur, this event will be open to all players in WA.  All K-6 players currently signed up for I Love Chess Too will be moved to the grade level sections K-6.  All older students and adults signed up will be moved to a new 7th - 12th Grade & Adult I Love Chess Too section.

-The event will be 7 rounds! Each round will begin immediately following the conclusion of the last game of the previous round.

-All Players signed up will be given a special one-day account with chesskid.com, so no personal accounts will be needed.

-Trophies will still be purchased and given later for players who finish with a plus score!

-Team Awards will still be given to schools with the top scores.

-The registration fee will be $45 per player.  The price will increase to $55 per player on April 20th,2020. 

-Additional event details will be posted at https://wsecc.org
