A chess tournament at Chadron State College is celebrating “the big three-o” this month.
The 30th annual CSC Chess Open will be Saturday, March 31, at the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center at 10 a.m. It is open to all players.
For an $8 entry fee, each participant will play four games and compete for one of six trophies. The entry fee is paid at the door and includes refreshments. Games begin at 10:30 a.m. and are limited to one and a half hours in the first three rounds and two hours in the fourth.
Players are expected to arrive at 10 a.m. for pairings and are asked to bring standard chess pieces, a board, and a chess clock, if possible.
The tournament is sponsored by the Northwest Nebraska Gamesters Association, a club consisting of CSC faculty, alumni and retirees.
