FRIDAY ACTION QUADS
The CCCSA conducts a regular "quad" US Chess rated tournament open to all scholastic (K-12) players. Quads, which group students by their skill level, are a great way for students to get closer matchups for a more fun and competitive challenge.
The Chess Center and all chess equipment will be disinfected and thoroughly cleaned several times daily
Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipe stations will be placed throughout the chess center
Disposable gloves will be provided if desired
Effective June 21, 2021
Masks and temperature checks will not be required. Participants may wear a mask if they choose to.
On May 14, North Carolina dropped most capacity restrictions, social distancing measures, and mask mandates for businesses. We wanted to give our members a chance to get acquainted with those changes. We now feel as though the mask requirement at the CCCSA is no longer needed.
See Governor Cooper's Executive Order 215 for more details.
