Thank You
Thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Roth for their recent generous donation of 10 chess sets, 3 digital clocks and 19 embroidered bags for the chess club and team. That's our first equipment update in over 10 years.

Weekly Meetings
We meet in Coach Minich's Room 202 classroom after school on Mondays from 2:30 - 3:10 pm (sometimes later.)

Parents
Contact me with your email address if you are interested in receiving updates and carpool opportunities for tournaments. See this GIFT GUIDE for holiday and birthday gift ideas. Great prices can be found at wholesalechess.com.

On the 2nd weekend of March 2017 (Mar 11 & 12), we will be playing in the PA State Chess Championship in Lancaster. There are divisions suitable for players of ALL AGES & ALL ABILITIES. Contact Coach Minich with questions and see last year's info as examples: Parent Info - Tournament Flyer - Permission slip.

 

Berks County Chess League Matches
The top five - seven players in Chess Club will represent the school as the official chess team and play other local schools in Berks County Chess League matches in January and February. The matches are held on Tuesdays after school. The schedule is posted here on our website under the link to “Berks Co. League.” Permission slip

 

Weekend Tournaments
Coach Minear updates a list of local tournaments on our website (see the "Upcoming Tournaments" link on the left side at wyomissingchess.com). Some tournaments are especially suited for youth novices. Please contact assistant coach, USCF chess master, and multiple-time PA state champion Peter Minear with questions at pminear@comcast.net.

 

Chess.com
We make a lot of use of the free Chess.com website which includes great tutorials, videos, computer vs. player, and player vs. player opportunities. We have a group named “Wyomissing Area High School Chess Club” that is only open to the players in our Chess Club making it easy to play each other online. Please encourage your child to use this website and consider upgrading to a paid subscription.
