As part of its series of special, one-day, Unrated but $$$ tournaments, the Roanoke Valley Chess Club recently held its JACK FROST QUICK CHESS TOURNAMENT. This tournament was held on Saturday, Dec 4, 2010 in the Community Room of the Roanoke Natural Foods Co-Op in Roanoke, Virginia. The tournament was a round-Robin event, with ALL entries being returned as prizes! The time control was Game in 10/5 and was played under modified Quick Chess Rules.

In all, there were 3 players who won money! Mike Smith took 1st place and Jay Varela and Hunter Harlowe tied for 2nd. Congratulations to all of the prize winners! The on-site Tournament Director was Ray Megginson. There were no significant problems of any kind and everyone appeared to have a really good time!

The Roanoke Valley Chess Club sincerely appreciates everyone who participated and made this Saturday Special event at the Co-Op yet another successful one in our series.

We also express our deep appreciation to the management and staff of the Co-Op, who have gone out of their way to make us feel especially welcome there for our weekly Saturday Club meetings.
