Region VIII Scholastic Championships
2017 TCA Region VIII
been awarded to:
Rancho Verde Elementary
February 4 & 5, 2017
After considerable deliberation, I have decided to award the 2017 bid to Rancho Verde Elementary of Los Fresnos.
All of the bids were very competitive in nature. Each offered a great opportunity for the scholastic chess players in our region to participate in a substantial, highly competitive and meaningful event that challenges their abilities.
Additionally, such an event will hopefully foster the desire in our scholastic students to improve their chess skills.
I strongly believe that such chess improvement will further enhance their probability of becoming better students, successful individuals and future community leaders.
Creating a foundation for such success should be a goal of all scholastic events.
