The Boylston Chess Club Needs Your Help

We urgently need more tournament directors (TDs) to keep offering a wide variety of tournaments each month.  Our small core group of currently active TDs is stretched quite thin, and we cannot run as many events at our beautiful site as we would like due to insufficient (wo)manpower.

Please consider becoming a certified USCF tournament director, if only to act as an assistant TD from time to time.

The certification process is extremely straightforward: 

1)  Read the USCF rulebook ("USCF Official Rules of Chess"), available at the club or online, e.g., on Amazon.

Players, please consider helping out as a TD occasionally to keep the tournaments we all enjoy running smoothly.

Parents, perhaps you can help direct while your child plays to help support the club's contributions to scholastic chess.

Please feel free to contact me or any other TD if you have any questions.  We look forward to working with you.
