     We support and promote chess all around the State at the statewide and local levels. We have a rich history and sense of tradition and leadership that takes the noble game of chess to the highest standards and levels of competition throughout Idaho.  Our regions are represented by a Trustee and include: North, West, South Central, and East regions.
