Mike Williams
Organizer and Chief Tournament Director

I regret to inform you that the SACC is dissolved. I moved to Michigan in January 2014 and there will be no more club meetings (unless someone volunteers to restart the club and the tournaments). Meanwhile I am leaving this website up, to keep a record of our past tournament winners and old news articles. But there will be no further updates to the website. Wishing everyone good luck and good chess, always. Regards, Mike Williams
