Held at Trinity United Methodist Church, the tournament starts at 5:30 p.m. and is open to all ages and skill levels. Participation costs $12 per player, and funds will help the troop travel to the Boy Scout of America’s Philmont Ranch in New Mexico for a week-long backpacking experience.

Winners will receive a Chess pie, a southern specialty dessert. Extra pies will be available for purchase following the awards ceremony.
