States Chess Cup

This fall, I organized the first ever States Chess Cup, a weekly online chess league featuring 28 states from across the country. The league started on September 8th, and it will conclude on November 14th. For more information on the league, please read through the USCF Press Release and the SCC Rules Document. To find out who's leading the league currently, check out the SCC Standings Sheet.

I am looking to raise $600 to cover the costs of running the league. The cost breakdown is as follows:

 - $400 for rating regular season matches
 - $40 for rating playoff matches
 - $40 to create a USCF affiliate
 - $120 for a trophy awarded to the winner of the league + individual medals for players on the highest placed teams

If you've been enjoying the States Chess Cup so far, as a player, streamer, or spectator, I would appreciate any amount you can contribute towards the operational costs of the league. Reaching the $600 goal will help ensure that we can continue to organize the league in future seasons.
