It is now high time to begin serious planning if you wish to attend this year's nationals.
- National Junior High (K-9) (April 4-6 at Hyatt Regency DFW, Dallas TX) Website
- National High School (K-12) (April 18-20 at Hyatt Regency Atlanta GA) Website
- National Elementary (K-6) (May 9-11 at Westin Hotel, Pittsburgh PA) Website
The fpawn has attended at least one of the Nationals for several years and he is interested in going to one again this year. But which one? It depends mostly on where the most students go and who would be interested in having me available for coaching between the rounds. Any of my students who are planning to attend Nationals, please send me an email note soon so that I can consider my own travel options.
As a final note, this year's CalChess State Scholastics will be on held the weekend after the National Elementary. Make sure to add these dates to your calendar as well.
