May 21, 2017.
Indiana Memorial Crosstable

19 May 2017 (Gerry Roberts). The 2017 ISCA Memorial Open is almost here!

Onsite entry to the ISCA Memorial Open (Church of the Nativity, 7300 N. Lantern Rd., Indianapolis) will be available from 8:15am-9:00am on Saturday morning.  Registration fees of $60 will be accepted by cash or credit.  Indiana residents must be members of ISCA to play, so membership fees may be additional.

If you are unable to play this weekend, but want to enjoy the festivities nonetheless, the top board in both in the Open and U1800 section will be broadcast live during the tournament here.  Feel free to share the link with loved ones or other interested parties.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday morning, whether in-person or online.

April 23, 2017. We are nearly a month removed from the biggest state chess tournament of the year and the unofficial end of the scholastic chess season - the SCI Team Championships. However, with great events like the Ben Harris Spring Chess Open (May 6, Bloomington), ISCA Memorial (May 20, Indianapolis), and Chicago Open (May 26-28, Wheeling, IL) on the horizon, there are plenty of opportunities for players young and old to keep busy during the "off-season." Registration is open and advanced entries are rolling in for these events, so read below to learn more while entry fees are still low. Read more.

Record Turnout for 2017

Southern Indiana Open!


Feb. 20, 2017. 57 players showed up for the tournament this year. As in the past the weather was a factor, or should I say a nonfactor. In 2015 we had 8 inches of snow the night before and last year it was below zero in Bloomington the night before. This year we had sunny skies and warm temps that may have aided turnout.
