45 YEARS “SAYING YES TO CHESS”

October 2012

Dear Chess Supporter,

Your donations are vital to help the U.S. Chess Trust aid American chess.

The U.S. Chess Trust Co-Sponsored (with UTD) the Second Koltanowski Conference on Chess and Education

The Trust was proud to be the co-sponsor with the University of Texas at Dallas of the Second Koltanowski Conference on Chess and Education held in Dallas, Texas, at the K-12 Championship November 18-19, 2011. Organized by Trust VP for Chess in Education Tim Redman, the conference brought teachers and others together from all parts of the country and included speakers from abroad.

The Denker Tournament of High School Champions: Atulya Shetty (R), James Stallings (L) UTD Scholarship

We were glad to participate in the opening and closing ceremonies of the Arnold Denker Tournament of High School Champions and the second Dewain Barber Tournament of K-8th Grade Champions in Vancouver, Washington in August. The Trust is pleased to support the Denker and Barber and we expect to support the Girls Invitational Tournament which will take place with the Denker and Barber next year in Madison, Wisconsin, during the US Open.
