Madison City Chess League to host All Girls State Championship

MADISON – Members of Madison City Chess League are excited to host the 2022 All Girls State Chess Championship in their hometown.

The venue for the championship tournament will be Hexagon at 305 Intergraph Way in Madison. The tournament date is Feb. 12.

“The last time we were able to host an over-the-board All Girls State was in 2020 at Liberty Middle School. We are looking forward to hosting in Madison again at a wonderful location – the Hexagon building,” MCCL Executive Director Ranae Bartlett said.

State Sen. Arthur Orr and Hexagon are sponsoring this tournament.

“Madison has the highest concentration of females playing chess, so we are hoping for another record-setting turnout,” Bartlett said.

The tournament will have three sections: K-3, K-6 and K-12. The top three scores from a school in each section will comprise the team score.

“The winner in the K-12 section will represent Alabama in the Ruth Haring National Girls Tournament of Champions,” Bartlett said.

Deadline for early registration is Feb. 5. The registration fee will double after that date. Bartlett encourages players to go ahead and register now.

Time Control for the K-3 and K-6 sections will be Game 30/d5 (5SS). Players will compete in rounds at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:45 p.m., 2:15 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

For the K-12 section, the Time Control will be Game 45/d5 (4SS). Rounds for player will start at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The team score will be the total of the top three individual scores from the same school in each section.

Entry fee is $25 through Feb. 5. The fee will then increase to $50 through Feb. 9. On-site registration will not be available.

“The Alabama Chess Federation requires all competitors in state championship events (including the All-Girls and the State Scholastic meets) to have a current ACF membership. You can check your membership status on the Alabama Chess Federation webpage at alabamachess.org,” Bartlett said.
