FM Robert Shlyakhtenko's article, "Mission Now Possible", about Mission360/Bay Area Chess spring NORM events, was published in Chess Life June issue!
We believe everyone, regardless of background, should have equal access to opportunities. Our hope is to provide those who lack resources with access to chess education and tournaments.
We envision connecting communities around the world one step at a time. From local chess camps for kids in our community to national norm events for chess masters seeking high-level tournaments to international fundraising initiatives for communities that lack chess resources, we believe this effort will bring us closer to fulfilling our vision.
