ECCC Tournaments


Emerald City Chess Club will not be holding chess tournaments for the foreseeable future. Until the chess club has enough members in leadership roles to where we can have multiple assigned to planning and executing a tournament, we will not be hosting tournaments.

If you are a University of Oregon student who would like to help bring tournaments back to the U of O, please contact us at

A Message from the Tournament Organizer:

Equipment: You must be a chess set and board.  If you do not bring a chess set and board ---- I may not be able to accept your registration.  In other words you may not be able to play if you don't bring equipment as I only will have a few extra sets and boards.  Also bring a chess clock if you have one.  Also bring a pen/pencil and scoresheets to record the moves of your games.

Registration: On-site from 12PM - 12:15 PM. I will need the following information for registration: Your Name, the school you attended, your grade in school (I actually need what grade you were just in, not the one you will be going to in September), and a contact method (phone/email). You may also pre-register by send an e-mail with the above information to "". If you pre-register you must still check in by 12:15 PM.  Those that register by e-mail will be given preference if I need to reduce those registered due to a lack of equipment.
