3rd Annual Greater California Scholastic Chess Championship

August 14, 2017


Over the weekend(August 12-13,) I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd Annual Greater California Scholastic Chess Championship held by the American Chess Academy at the beautiful Maple Park Community Center in Glendale, California. The event was sponsored by the Kasparov Chess Foundation and Beyond Chess assisted the ACA with event management. It was a special treat to attend such a well run scholastic chess tournament organized by such amazing and professional people. I would like to extend my gratitude to Armen Ambartsoumian for convincing me to attend this fine event.
