2021 GR Fall Action Challenge

Northlawn United Methodist

Event Overview

Join us in September for our exciting action tournament! Five competitive rounds of chess in three different sections. This is a great event to jump into for your first experience at a tournament. It is also a great chance to sharpen your play for other tournaments. Join us at the Grand Rapids Chess Center for a fun one-day event with a nice prize fund! Action time controls allow for several games in one day and yet long enough for interesting and quality chess.
