Happy Holidays from US Chess

Dear US Chess Community:

On behalf of our US Chess family, I extend season's greetings to you and those close to you. With the end of 2020 upon us, my hope for you and your family is good health and peace in the new year.
US Chess will be closed on Thursday, December 24, and Friday, December 25, and again on Thursday, December 31, and Friday, January 1. If you need something during this time, please plan ahead and make your request in advance of the scheduled closures. Our offices will reopen for regular business on Monday, January 4, 2021 at 8 am CT.
As we look back on 2020 we reflect on a very unusual year, featuring both highs and lows. We saw:

  • the impact of a pandemic that cancelled a full cycle of US Chess national OTB events;
  • the excitement in the mainstream media and in society about chess due to The Queen’s Gambit and the many streaming personalities introducing the game to new enthusiasts;
  • abundant new opportunities to play US Chess rated games across slow and fast time controls on platforms that have been endorsed by US Chess;
  • the adaptability of our community to try new things, such as two online Delegates meetings embraced with an amazing spirit to step outside what was comfortable;
  • your generous support of time, expertise, and financial contributions that have made an important difference; and
  • your shared commitment to helping US Chess promote the game in all its forms across this nation.

Thank You for being the best part of who we are as an organization and I look forward to seeing you in person in 2021. Until then, please be safe and stay healthy as we eagerly await a return to more typical days.

Warmest regards,

Carol Meyer 
US Chess Executive Director
