State Chess Championship Draws a Record Turnout

September 8th, 11:59AM

The 2023 Alabama State Chess Championship was held last weekend (September 1-3) at Trash Panda Stadium. Hosting the State Chess Championship in Madison was a first. The 116 players who showed up to compete made this a record turnout! The SportsMed Stadium Club made for a beautiful venue and the Trash Pandas staff was fantastic to work with. State Representative Phillip Rigsby, one or our sponsors, stopped by to welcome everyone to Madison and to present us with a certificate in recognition of the 70th Annual Alabama State Chess Championship.
