Just a reminder that February's WISCL tournament is this Saturday, February 20th, at 9:00am on Lichess. Register at https://www.wiscl.org/register, no later than 6pm tomorrow evening. Remember that there are two parts to registration - you must fill out the google form or you will not be on the email list to receive the password for the tournament. You also must join the WISCL Team on Lichess (if you played this year, you are already in), or Lichess will not let you enter the tournament. Each month, there are a few players who have completed one step but not the other, and it's a scramble to get them in before the tournament starts.

After the tournament (about 11:30am), we will again have a fun blitz tournament for anyone who wants to stick around. No password is required.

Also, the Idaho Chess Association will be holding the Western Regional Scholastic Qualifier on Chess.com, Saturday, February 27, at 10am. This is the last scholastic qualifier for State. Register at https://bit.ly/21Scholastics

Hope to see you all Saturday,

[10/18/20]   Dear WISCLers - Many of you have been asking about this year's tournament plans. Due to Covid-19, WISCL will not be holding in-person tournaments this calendar year, given the size of our monthly tournaments. We will re-evaluate in December and determine if we can, either safely or legally, resume in-person tournaments in January.

However, we are excited to announce the first WISCL online tournament, which will take place this Saturday, October 24th, at 9:00am, at Lichess.org. Please visit wiscl.org to register for the tournament.

The online tournament will work a little different from the in-person tournaments. While we will track team results, it will be an individual tournament - you may be paired against someone from your own school. Since it is a free tournament, there will not be trophies, ribbons, or medals. Also, your Lichess rating is based on your performance in Lichess games only -- WISCL and USCF ratings will not be used or affected.

Hope to see many of you on Saturday!

[03/15/20]   Dear Chess Friends: Considering the recommendations from state and local agencies regarding COVID-19, the WISCL tournament scheduled for this Saturday, March 21st has been cancelled.

Many thanks to all the chess players, coaches, parents, volunteers, and everyone who helped at the tournaments this year. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
