Mission: The Chess Team participates in matches and tournaments in the area and region. We send cadets to the Armed Forces Open Championship in Washington DC. The cadets also participate in the U.S. Amateur Team Championship. We’ve won the military trophy for the last several years. We play matches against other colleges and local clubs. We sponsor tournaments on post. We also meet every Tuesday night to hold speed tournaments and analyze games.
