🌱 Minnesota Chess Surge Continues in Q2 📈

The Minnesota State Chess Association's rapid growth trend continues! 1,133 chess players participated across the 12 MSCA events held during the 1st half of 2024.  This represents a 21% increase in participation from the 1st half of 2023. 💪

Coupled with this growth in participation was strong membership enrollment which lifted the MSCA member count to 480. More members and more chess players combined to increase revenues by 37% from the 1st half of 2023. The MSCA works hard to keep members informed of its financial progress and you can check out all of the key financial metrics posted on the financials tab of our website. 💼

☀️ This strong start to 2024 will help fund the $2,500 of prizes the MSCA has guaranteed for the Summer Grand Prix Series. This is a series of 6 events held from May - September at locations around the state. The $2,500 in prizes is “above & beyond” the regular prize money available at these chess tournaments. The Summer Grand Prix Series is now in full swing as stops in St. Cloud and Duluth/Superior are complete...and stop #3 in Rochester is on deck for this weekend.
