Clatskanie Chess Club



DATE:                    Saturday, January 19, 2002


AWARDS:            Why would someone travel to tiny little Clatskanie Oregon to play a game of chess?  For the great trophies, medals and special awards that’s why!    Trophies for 1st through 4th place in each section.  Medallions for 3 wins or more.  We will also have something special for chess players who did their best and learned a lot!  No one goes home empty handed.

DIRECTIONS:     Travel Highway 30 west from Portland towards Astoria.  (Clatskanie is approximately 60 miles northwest of Portland.)  We’re a one stoplight town… don’t blink or you may miss it!  Two streets past the light, turn left off of Hwy 30 onto Bryant Street. The Community Center is 6 blocks up, on the left.  Parking is available on the street and in the gym parking lot across the street.


                                It may be faster for some folks to take I-5 to Longview, WA.  Turn left onto 15th Ave.  Take the Lewis & Clark Bridge across the Columbia River.   Turn right onto Hwy 30 and then follow the directions above.
