2007 2nd Annual Neshobe Chess Tourney

Brandon, VT

A message from the Tournament Director...

"THANK YOU!  On behalf of the Neshobe Chess Club at Neshobe School in Brandon, Vermont, I would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to the many Vermonters who helped make the 2nd Annual Neshobe Chess Tournament a great success.  37 players (almost twice as many as last year) from as far away as Royalton, and their families, visited Neshobe School on Saturday, March 24th for a great day of chess.

  • To the staff, administrators, PTO, and volunteers at Neshobe School who all pitched in from lending their expertise, rooms, or time to this event.
  • To our high school and college age room monitors, who volunteered their day to supervise our sections.
  • To Jim Sherwin, who's hand made wooden chess board attracted much interest through the day, and is being raffled off June 1st to support Neshobe School Chess Club activities.
  • To the Rutland Chess Club, who donated our trophies this year.
  • To Chess Coaches throughout Addison and Rutland counties (and beyond!) who coach their kids each week and encourage them  to attend our tournament.
  • And finally, to all of our participants and their families who support them.  They all saw first-hand the tournament's motto in action: "Chess for Success!"

Thank you all, and see you next year!"
