Chess Match - Iowa vs Peoria

I have been in discussion with Peoria Chess Club about challenging their club to a match.  I am looking for Iowans interested in playing a 2 game match on Monday, November 16 starting at 7:30pm on  The match is limited to players with USCF rating under 2000.  We will probably make some adjustments to the teams such that everyone plays someone within 50 rating points of themselves.  The first step in the process is to see who is interested.  Once we have that list (and Peoria is making their own list), we will compare each board's rating and go from there.  If Iowa has considerably more players than Peoria can field, it is possible we might have a 3 way match, but first things firs

Iowa Chess 2020 annual Meeting OCT 17 Noon

Topic: IASCA Membership Meeting Time: Oct 17, 2020 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada) Dear Iowa Chess Community. I have been putting this off, hoping back in April that in August we might be able to have the meeting at the Iowa Open. Well August arrived and we were unable to have the meeting in person and September things were not any better. So for better or worse we will have our meeting with Zoom. I apologize for those who do not have Zoom capability, if possible perhaps you could go to a friend or family members home who has that ability. A big thanks to Jim Hodina for organizing the meeting and providing us this link. Down below is the info Eric G. Vigil President Join Zoom Meet
