The Boy Scout Chess Tournament is a five-round touch-move chess tournament.  There are three competitive brackets: ages 10-12, ages 13-15, and ages 16-18.  Awards are issued for top finishers by bracket.  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 Boy 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.  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.
