Next Tournament


Pictured are 25 of the 30 students who have registered for the Golden Knights Scholastic Chess Club which will meet on Monday nights at the Charles Upson Elementary School while looking for a new home since the Lockport Youth Center was CLOSED in December 2013!

There were 13 female chess players a fantastic number for girls and 18 other the chess players were from Charles Upson Elementary School who are beginners and learning the chess basics.

Two brothers JonLuke and Andrew Pencille have signed up for the upcoming NYS Scholastic Chess Championships in Saratoga Springs NY on March 1 and 2nd, 2014. We need help to send 14 Golden Knights to the USCF National K-9 Scholastic Chess Championships in Atlanta GA during the month of April 2014.

We are looking for DONATIONS for Coach Bus for transportation, Overnight stay in the Hotel, USCF memberships, USCF Entry fee per student, POLO Shirts, Team Jackets, Staunton Chess Sets, Algebraic Vinyl Boards, Saitek digital chess clocks and Scorebooks.

If you would like to help, please reply to with name and telephone. The Golden Knights are planning a Scholastic Chess Tournament in Feb 2014 to help raise awareness and funding.

Thanks for all your help and continued support to help us grow chess in the Lockport area!
