Mid-Hudson Scholastic Chess League is looking for new teams!

written by Doug Stack

The Mid-Hudson Scholastic Chess League is presently looking to expand our roster of participating schools. I would like to invite you and your team to participate in the league.

Our season, consisting of tour tournaments, will start October or November 2022 and end March 2023. The tournaments will be held on Saturdays at one of the participating schools. All tournaments will start at 9 AM and end at 3 PM.

We are the only scholastic chess league in the area and offer a safe and organized place for your students to match their chess skills against players from other area schools.  Chess competition traditionally has led to a sense of team (even family) within a school club, as well as friendships among students going to different high schools. Chess is frequently a haven for motivated students who might be less athletic or artistic than their classmates, yet want to participate and excel

Please contact MHSCL president Douglas Stack at dstack@cornwallschools.com for more information.  Visit the league’s website http://www.mhschess.com/ for a look at our 20-year history.

We hope to hear from you soon!
