Hello Wonderful Learners Chess Parents and Friends!

A few reminders in today's email and a new puzzle! 
But first, results are now published from our April 2nd team tournament! Apologies for the delay, but with nearly 300 participants' results to account for, it does take time. 

Reminders and updates on upcoming programs and tournaments:
  • Tomorrow, there is no school at most schools and so we have our last Single Day Chess Camp of the semester! We have a few spots left so sign up soon!
  • The next of our monthly chess and/or bughosue tournametns is coming up on April 23rd! Sign up here today!
  • And for our summer tournaments, we will be moving to Saturday mornings to avoid the afternoon heat beating down on our young chess learners while they're in competition. Our June tournament will be Saturday Morning, June 17th

Fun Chess Puzzles! - SUMMER SERIES!
As we continue to approach summer, we continue to borrow a series of chess puzzles composed by Coach Eddie in his book,  Chess Puzzle Learning Levels Volume 1.

This is Coach Eddie's SUMMER series of puzzles. In all of these puzzles, the pieces make the shape of one of the letters in the word SUMMER. Below is the first 'M' puzzle for the word SUMMER. To see the 'S' and 'U' puzzles, click here

Hint: all problems in this series are forced checkmates.
