Reflecting on Our April 18 Online Chess Tournament


The CDA Chess Club's online tournament on April 18 brought together chess enthusiasts for an evening of strategic gameplay and community camaraderie. Although the turnout was smaller than anticipated, the event was exciting. We congratulate Payton, who emerged victorious with a win and a draw, showcasing exceptional skill and strategic acumen on the virtual chessboard. A hearty well done to Steve, who secured a win, and Michael D., who achieved a draw, for their commendable performances.

Our tournament was designed to offer a platform for players of all levels to engage, learn, and compete. However, with only three competitors joining in, it has led us to pause and reflect on our approach to bringing our community together. We want to reassure you that we're committed to enhancing our online activities and ensuring they meet the interests and schedules of our members. Your participation and feedback are crucial in this journey.

We view this as an opportunity to learn and improve. So, we'd like to emphasize the importance of your thoughts and suggestions on boosting participation in future events. Whether it's adjusting the timing, changing the format, or including additional incentives, we're open to ideas that will strengthen our chess community. Your feedback is invaluable and will shape the future of our club.

Despite the lower turnout, the spirit of competition and love for the game was palpable. We thank those who participated or showed interest; your support is invaluable. As we look forward to our next gathering, we're reminded of the importance of adaptability, feedback, and our shared passion for chess.

Stay tuned for future announcements, and please comment below with your ideas for us. Together, we'll continue to celebrate and nurture our love for chess, building an even stronger community.

If you have any questions or would like to send suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us at

Here's to more exciting chess ventures ahead!

Warm regards,
The CDA Chess Club Team
