I know many people have seen this already, but here are the results for the Colorado Springs Open, as well as a small report from Richard (Buck) Buchanon.
Colorado Closed 2018
The application page for the Colorado Closed is now open for business.
NOTE: Registering does not mean you are eligible. Only the top 6 players (or if you qualified last year) will be eligible for the tournament.
This year there will be 2 sections. There is also a side tournament which is a round robin. Details for that tournament can be found here

CSCA Scholastic State Championship Results
The tournament is over! A big thank you to all the parents, TD's, players, and oraganizers that did their part to make this tournament a huge success!
PLEASE NOTE: The final standings take TIE BREAKS into account. The USCF crosstables do not (they order by score, and then by rating only)
If anyone has pictures that they are willing to have posted on the website, please send them to email@example.com as we'll start a good montage of chess pictures!
Hello everyone! As you can hopefully see, there is a new website for the CSCA! Please be aware that some content is still being moved over from the old site (mainly History and previous results).
If you see/run into any issues please contact Dean Clow @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Any ORGANIZERS that require access to enter/edit tournaments please contact Dean Clow at the email address above to recieve the log in information

CSCA Board Meeting: September 15, 2017
It was a good year for the CSCA with the board functioning like a well oiled machine. It was only necessary to have 3 meeting throughout the year, and also kept online contact to a minimum.
Here are the list of motions that were passed this year: Most were unanimous, the exception-the membership vote to not accept the Board’s recommendation to kill the tour by 2 votes following a very lengthy speech in favor of continuing the tour by Buck.
