📈 MSCA Finishes Strong Q1 💪

The MSCA had a great start to the new year with a strong Q1. 804 chess players participated across 6 events during what is always the busiest time of the year for Minnesota chess. This represented a 17% increase in participation from the 1st Quarter of 2023. 📈

Coupled with this growth in participation was strong membership enrollment which lifted the MSCA member count to 403. More members and more chess players combined to increase revenues by 23% from Q1 2023. Overall it was a strong start to 2024 for the MSCA and our Minnesota chess community. You can check out the key Q1 2024 financial metrics which are posted on our website consistent with our process for each quarter.

🏁This strong start will now help fuel the $2,500 prize fund the MSCA guarantees for the 2024 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” all of the regular prize money available at these chess tournaments. Online registration for 3 of the Summer Grand Prix Events is open now (St. Cloud 🌤️, Duluth/Superior 🌊, Franklin 😺🐟️) and online registration will be available soon for the Rochester event.
