 10th Annual Powhatan District Akela Chess Classic

 

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. 

Schedule:

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 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 and pieces will be provided. 

Fee: $15 per scout. Includes: Participation patch, rocker patch, 
and engraved awards for top finishers.
