Region VIII Scholastic Championships

2017 TCA Region VIII
Scholastic Chess

been awarded to:

Rancho Verde Elementary
Los Fresnos

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.

Thank you!

Ed Guetzow
Region VIII Director
