Mayor’s Chess Tournament, Oct. 20th

Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz will host a “Mayor’s Chess Tournament” from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 at the Toledo Public Schools Educational Campus, 1609 N. Summit St. The tournament will be held in the former YMCA gymnasium. Registration is from 8 to 9 a.m.

“Chess players of all ages and skills will play chess during this tournament,” Mayor Kapszukiewicz said. “Playing chess not only promotes critical and creative thinking, it’s also a lot of fun. We are happy to be a part of this event and I want to thank Warren Woodberry, the Toledo Scholastic Chess Club, Toledo Public Schools, and the generous sponsors who are making it possible.” 

Woodberry, chess director at Jones Leadership Academy of Business, suggested Mayor Kapszukiewicz host the tournament.

“Mayors across the country hold chess tournaments for their communities to encourage children and adults to play the game, which is a great skill and promotes critical thinking and planning,” Mr. Woodberry said. “The event is open to all adults, children, city officials, companies, regional neighbors, and four top students from Toledo area schools, grades K-12. The event is a fundraiser to support Toledo Scholastic Chess.”

The site was selected by Toledo Public Schools Superintendent Romules Durant.

There will be trophies and medals for scholastic players in kindergarten through 12th grade. There will be cash prizes for adults, 19 and over, and for students who are rated and members of the United States Chess Federation. Mr. Woodberry said. Adults who are not members of the United States Chess Federation will receive trophies and medals in the non-rated category, he said.

The fee to play in the tournament is $20 for adults 19 and older. It is free for scholastic players in kindergarten through 12th grade.
