Colorado State Chess Association



Dear fellow Colorado Chess players,

Here is what we believe is a fairly complete list of major tournament winners, state champions, club champions, organizers, and CSCA trivia and records. Many of the older records were compiled by the late John Harris. I have checked much of what is presented below with many of the CSCA "Old Timers" for their thoughts and recollections. There are a few gaps (especially in the late 1980's and early 1990's in the Scholastic Section) below and possibly a few inaccuracies (but hopefully, not many!)? I welcome any corrections, additions, or omissions that you may find. Also, please let me know if there is some category that you would like to see included on the list below.
