Summer 2015 Ending

Hard to believe summer is almost over!  I have chosen tentative dates for this next year's chess tournaments - the entire school year
If you know of any conflicts let me know so I can change things if necessary.

News:  Dylan Porth was selected to represent Idaho at the prestigious National Girls Invitational Chess Championship in Phoenix beginning this Saturday.  One girl from each state was selected.  She would love sponsorship so call me if you would like to help in some way (contact me).  She has also opted to participate in the US Open with me!   Very cool.
