Putney Summer Series #2 (Chess Tournament)

If you’ve never played in a chess tournament before, this is a great opportunity to try it out. I run the chess club up at UVM, and I’m directing 5 tournaments in Putney this summer (the first was on May 28th). The hope is to get more chess in Southern VT and provide a good environment for people to try it out. There are two sections: Open for more experienced players and U1100 for newer players and the scholastic crowd.

This tournament will take place on Sunday, June 18th. This is the second part of a 4-tournament series. The first in the series was on May 28th, the latter two will be on July 9th and August 13th (all Sundays).
