CSCA Members and all chessplayers,
Normally, in September at the Colorado Open, we elect our leaders for the next year. The Board members have assigned tasks according to our Bylaws.
This has been anything but normal. We have had to cancel our chess events, avoid crowds, and in general, forsake over the board chess. This meant at we did not hold elections in September. We tried an online election but that was shutdown after a complaint AND no one in the meeting was willing to serve. The complaint was valid, as our Bylaws do not offer that option. So, following the Bylaws, we elected board, had four members who had committed to serve for one year, did a great job but now wanted to return to being a regular chessplayer. So one at a time that was done. As one resigned, one was replaced until all but one has been replaced.
I welcomed the new board today and we will conduct an online meeting soon. It is our goal to return chess to normal (well, as normal as can be done) as soon as possible. While we can not make reservations yet, are are penciled in at several locations in 2021. I will use this website to keep everyone informed a to what is happening with the CSCA.
Board for 2020-21
Paul Covington, President
Brad Lundstrom, Vice President
Alexander Freeman, Secretary
Sam Bridle, Treasurer
Member at Large, open
Member at Large, Gracie Salazar
Fred Spell, Colorado Chess Informant (Fred was recognized by Chess Journalists of America for his outstanding work on the CCI.)
Dean Clow, Webmaster
Todd Bardwick, Historian

We still need a lady to be the coordinator for AAUW Girls Title 1 chess program (Denver area) and women coaches to teach chess in Title 1 schools (these teacher positions are paid positions). Anyone interested?
I hope 2020-21 will be a great year for Colorado chess.
