RCI’s Brightest of 2014

Tournament Chess Players enjoy all the benefits associated with chess.  Tournament Chess Players study, analyze, and perform.  Chess parents travel thousands of miles a year, give up weeknights, Saturdays and sometimes their whole weekends.  They invest in lodging, entry fees, meals, books, equipment, and coaching.  RCI, the VSCA, and the VCF all provide 100’s of volunteer hours because we know that   Tournament Chess opens doors.  Congratulations to the entire team!
