This week in GCAA Chess! (2/29-3/5)

Last Week's Tournament: At the Action Tournament at SLU last week, Isaac Zimmerman brought home the 2nd place trophy for the 10th grade section, and the 9th and Under Team won their division again! In case you haven't been keeping score, the team has played in five Gateway League tournaments this year, and won the 9th & Under Division (3) times and placed second once! Senior High League News: GCAA's Chess Team finished out the League season 7th in the conference. Not bad for the first year! Next Saturday's tournament: Bollinger tournament at Wydown in Clayton. More info here. As always, please let me know ASAP if your player is coming. Cash or checks for $12 made out to Gateway Chess League can be given to us on Tuesday; money brought on Saturday needs to be cash. State tournament: State Tournament in Columbia is coming up March 19 (first Saturday of Spring Break). We'd like to start putting together the roster for this, so let us know if your player is coming and if s/he needs a ride over. Nationals: The roster is set: Sophie, Isaac, & Chris will be playing in the under 1200 section, and Galen, Lillian, & Gabe will be playing in the under 800 section. I'll send more info about this under separate cover. Thanks for your continuing support of your student and our team!! If you have questions, feel free to contact me - email is best, or call/text 314-517-2117. Thanks, lisa Selligman
