The Akela Chess Classic is a five-round touch-move chess tournament.  There are two competitive brackets: Tiger/Wolf and Bear/Webelos.  Awards are issued for top finishers by rank: Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos 1, and Webelos 2.  Check-in starts at 8 AM.  Rounds are at 9 AM, 10 AM, 11 AM, 1 PM and 2 PM.  Bring your own lunch; lunch is 12-1.  The Award Ceremony is at 3:30 PM.

Any Tiger Cub, Cub Scout or Webelos Scout with a clear understanding of the rules of chess may participate.  Participating scouts must know the basic rules of chess: How the pieces move, the object of the game, and castling rules, and should be mature enough to handle victory and defeat.  No instruction on the basic rules of chess will be given as part of the tournament.  A brief description of the tournament rules will be explained before the start of the tournament.  These include touch move – if a piece is touched it must be moved.  Scouts should wear uniforms and bring a bag lunch. Chess board & pieces will be provided.
