Instructors: Becky Ludwiszak, Eddie Moskala

The chess club at Sierra was supported and basically run by a handful of highly motivated parents and school teachers. Overcoming all the obstacles and problems posed by the district and the administration, the chess club not only had some very strong players among many chess club participants, but also was able to host one or two tournaments a year for SACA, which is great, considering how limited our resources are here in Tucson for finding locations and school willing and able to host such big tournaments as League matches or State Qualifiers. I wish also great success and prosperity to the official chess organizer Becky Ludwiszak and her recent new born, without whom the chess club would probably not be able to thrive or even survive.
