Dear Chess Coaches:

Below are the results of the 2005 Wisconsin Scholastic Chess Championships. Congratulations to Madison West High School for three-peating for the second time in eight years! In all 510 players participated in the event, 19 short of last year’s record.

I walked through the lodging floors Sunday and night and they were in the best shape I’ve ever seen! Thanks to all the coaches for keeping the floors clean.

Next year’s event will be held at UW-Oshkosh March 11-12, 2006. Please note that in 2007 UW-Oshkosh’s spring break will move a week later and be March 18-25, 2007. To avoid congestion on campus, it is best that we stick to a weekend on their spring break. So, look for 2007’s event to be a week later.

Active flyers we have received for events in Wisconsin

The State Scholastic Chess Championships are held every year in the spring, toward the end of the school year. They began in Milwaukee but moved to Oskosh to be more accessible to schools in the rest of the state.

The Arpad Elo Memorial actually began as the Elo Open while Arpad Elo was still alive. After his death it moved to Madison for many years before becoming a roving tournament.

This tournament is held in the fall every year, just after the school year begins.

This is a closed tournament, open only to residents of Wisconsin and past champions. It started out being held in early May, moved to Memorial Day weekend for many years, and gradually moved to Labor Day weekend.
