    During our Annual board meeting we made the decision to transition our old closed group to an open group in order to better meet our goals as an organization. We will be closing the old group by the end of November. We ask that you please join the new open group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/floridachess.org to stay up to date on Florida chess. Thanks!!

    It is with sincere disappointment I am required to write this post. Due to the incoming Hurricane and safety concerns for travelers, the Marriott and the FCA has made the difficult decision to reschedule the state championship.

    Everyone registered will be fully refunded for their entry fee. We would ask for your patience with the refund process as it is our goal to have everyone refunded by close of business on Wednesday, September 4th. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at nmbtillis@gmail.com.

    Much like the pieces being reset after a tough loss, we will have the resilience to continue and we will have  our championship at another time. I will be working diligently to find a new suitable date immediately for our tournament. I sincerely hope to have your continued support and again I apologize for this cancellation. 

    Be safe and best wishes,

    Bryan Tillis
