California Online Blitz Champs

Here comes one tournament that you can play without even leaving your house!  Join the California Online Blitz Championships on Sunday, June 10, for two hours of fun chess and a small opportunity to spread chess to those less fortunate.  While registration at the Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) is free, the $7 entry fee supports the nonprofit Chess For Charity (80%) and the NorCal High School Online Chess League (20%).  The inspiration and manpower behind both organizations come from local high school chess players.

The event is open to all ages.  It is not USCF rated, but ratings will be used for pairings.
