Robby also organizes one of the premiere chess camps each summer. Now in its ninth year, the camp has attracted some of the strongest youngsters around the country. Invitees are rated at least 1500, and the top group is over 2100! Last year, they had 5 masters and an incredible 30 attendees rated 1900+! Of course, such talented students are taught by highly qualified instructors, including Grandmasters Josh Friedel, Melik Khachiyan and Alejandro Ramirez. The camp schedule includes 35 hours of serious chess over 5 days, plus a variety of fun activities in the evening.
The 2012 Western Invitational Chess Camp runs from July 15 to 19, with an optional weekend tournament at the end. If this sounds interesting, don't take my word for it--just check out the website!
If you end up going, please beat Robby at blitz or bullet for me. Thanks!
