2010 Eastern Idaho Scholastic Chess Tournament

2010 Eastern Idaho Scholastic Open Chess Tournament

By Jay Simonson
President, Idaho Chess Association

The Idaho Chess Association held the Eastern Idaho Scholastic Novice Chess Tournament and the 2010 Eastern Idaho Scholastic Open Chess Tournament on January 30, 2010 at Rimrock Elementary School in Ammon, Idaho. Seventy students who had not before participated in a chess tournament outside their own school played in the Novice Tournament and 32 students who had been in a tournament before played in the Open Tournament. These 102 students competed for trophies in nine different playing sections. The Novice sections were: Kindergarten and First Grade; Second Grade; Third Grade; Grades Four through Six; and Grades Seven Through Twelve. Open sections were: Kindergarten and First Grade; Second and Third Grade; Grades Four through Six; and Grades Seven through Twelve. Each section was color coded to aid participants in finding their game board. Trophies were presented to individual winners in each grade level and also to winning teams in each section. Kindergarten and First Grade sections and Seventh Thru Twelfth Grade Sections were run as Double Round Robin due to the small number of participants.
