Region III US Chess Tournament Clearinghouse (MD - DC - VA)


This is the US Chess Tournament Clearinghouse for the States of Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

Events from other adjacent states will be listed unless they conflict badly with established MD-DC-VA tournaments.
I am requesting the assistance of our organizers to submit their events promptly and
follow the
US Chess policy for the Regional Tournament Clearinghouses.


Ernest Schlich has been officially designated as the Region III clearinghouse coordinator by US Chess and with the approval of the Region III state affiliates.
Please email your tournament information to me or CC me in your e-mail to USCF/TLA


Website links to the Region III State Affiliates:  District of Columbia,     Maryland Chess Association,     Virginia Chess Federation.
