JP Open Streets 2024

Save the date, July 21, 2024 for Jamaica Plain's Open Streets. As with the prior two years we are planning to be present with tournaments and casual chess. This will include a morning tournament and an afternoon tournament, with each tournament splitting entrants into two groups based on estimated rating. Last year we had almost 32 players compete in each tournament, including two National Masters. We had a prize fund of $250 with prizes donated from local businesses and members, including Kendall Square Dental, Caffé Nero, On Centre, J.P. Seafood, J.P. Licks and The Blue Frog Bakery.

For more information on the 2024 event see our webpage. We are looking for volunteers and prize donations for this year.
