The BCCL will host the 6th Annual BCPS/BCCL Chess Championships at Crossroads Elementary School on January 14, 2017. Crossroads has been so gracious to host the Bullitt County Chess Championships each school year since 2013. The BCCL Chess Championships is only for BCPS students.
This year our county has seen our chess talent grow leaps and bounds in rated chess, but this tournament is for both rated and unrated chess players alike Do not think that all rated players are superior to unrated chess players. This tournament will have players of all abiliteis regardless of ratings. Our goal is to use chess as a means to help students goal set, develop thinking strategies, and to build friendships!. We are one big chess family and this year I hope to see a record turn out in chess participation not only at the BCCL Chess Championships but also at the Feb. 4 Regionals and the March 18 State Team Title that North Bullitt will host.
Doors open at 9 AM and the first round begins at 10 AM. We will offer K-1, K-3, K-5, K-8 and K-12 sections. Top 3 players earn trophies!
Unlimited players will be in each section.
All BCPS chess coaches will need to bring all of their chess sets in case we run low on chess sets.
Players need to turn in their chess sign up forms to their chess coaches by Thursday the 12th.
If you are a chess player who wants to play but your school does not have a chess program then you may sign-up by having your parent e-mail me at Dennis.Minnis@bullitt.kyschools.us with your full name, school, grade, and section that you wish to compete in.
See you next Saturday at Crossroads!
