COLUMBUS OPEN 2014 WRAP-UP (6/30/14)

The turn-out was lower than normal but the tournament was a great success! At this years Columbus Open I brought in 6 of my personal DGT electronic wooden boards, clocks, and Cassia software which enabled me to broadcast the top 6 boards of the open section LIVE on my website as well as broadcast the games LIVE on a big screen at the tournament. This feature enhanced the privacy of the top 6 boards and still gave everyone an opportunity to watch the games and even talk amongst themselves about the games in progress without disturbing any of the players. I also brought my Monroi Hub which allowed me to LIVE broadcast games of anyone who was using a Monroi Personal Chess Manager (PCM). These features really elevated the quality of the tournament and all the feedback was extremely positive! Please let me know if you would like these features added to your next tournament (use the "Contact Us" button on the left).

I would like to thank everyone who participated in last years Buckeye Scholastic Chess Tournament. I would also like to thank all of my tournament directors and especially my volunteer staff ... you did a wonderful job! I received a lot of positive feedback and a few negative one's as well. Ultimately, if the kids enjoyed themselves that is what is most important to me. I am planning a much larger space in the Ohio Union next year to accomodate participants. The skittles area and playing area will both be on the first floor and the playing area will be in one room. I cannot change the start time as the Ohio Union does not allow us in until 9am when they open, so a 10:30 start time will be the same as this year as it was advertised. I hope to see everyone back next year!
