Midwest Chess Camp Date Moved
The date for the Midwest Chess Camp, held annually at Peoria Academy, has been changed to August 11th through 13th, one week later than originally scheduled. The cause for the change is that the school has scheduled building maintenance for the previous week. Please mark your calendars for the new date. We will still have all the regular features and focus of the camp.
