Tournament with a cause: See what these students are doing in Toronto!
Inaugural OSCO Alzheimer’s Chess Championship
The Ontario Student Chess Organization (OSCO) is doing what has never been done before: it is the first attempt to unite university and college students across ontario under a single organization. However, we are more than a simple chess organization. OSCO seeks to provide chess with a meaning, a tournament with a cause; our first tournament on August 12th in Toronto is for Alzheimer’s awareness, since chess is a preventative factor in this neurodegenerative disease.
This event will be a casual/competitive blitz chess tournament (10|0) this upcoming Saturday, August 12 at 10:30AM-3PM in downtown Toronto. Online registration and lunch will both be free of charge for attendees. Unlike many free tournaments, there are many prizes for the winners. Play Magnus chess sets, chess.com diamond memberships, and beautiful chess trophies are a few of these prizes. Not only are there prizes for the winners, but there are also giveaways that everyone can participate in by registering online or referring a friend by August 10. These include winning one of 10 chess.com gold memberships and free t-shirts, respectively. Door registration will be offered, but a fee of $5 will apply.
