TMSA Chess Team: requests & reminders

Dear Parents,


The kids played fabulously on Sunday!  I just received the full results and am pleased to see that they finished with a bang, winning 8 out 11 games during the 3rd round.  I was very proud of all the children for recording notation during the tournament even though their opponents often were not doing the same.  The effort they are investing now will pay off handsomely if they continue to play in chess competitions next year.



(1) Ask your child to select their favorite game from the tournament and please scan & email me their notation sheet from that gametonight.  During chess club tomorrow, I'd like to go over a few of their games on the demo board.


(2) Please remind your children to complete their chess homework tonight and bring it in tomorrow (all of them have at least one worksheet to finish, which was passed out last Friday).  This will be their last chess assignment for the year!


(3) As you hang up 2013 calendars in your homes, please mark these important dates:

            Feb10    Wake County Scholastic Chess Championships (indiv & team contest)

            Mar1-3  North Carolina Scholastic Chess Championships (indiv & team contest)

            Apr21    Team vs. Team tournament (same format as last Sunday)

All of these tournaments will be held in Raleigh.


(4) If any TMSA children are enthusiastic to play more chess this month, there is an individual tournament at Durham Academy this Saturday morning (I'll be there with my kids) and a team contest in Wake Forest on Dec29.  The latter will follow the same format as last Sunday, so a parent volunteer would be needed to coordinate the TMSA's registrants.  Information on most local tournaments can be found at


(5) FYI, my wife and I host a kids' chess club in our basement on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 6:00-7:30pm.  It is open to the public and free of charge, so I will give each child a flyer for that tomorrow.


Warm regards,


Prakash Bhave

Chess Coach
