Please submit your game in any format. Digital is preferred but ALL formats are most welcome. The most popular format is .pgn for chess games and if your not familiar with this format it may be worth your time to investigate how others and you can benefit from using it.

The SDCA archivist and web maintenance staff are searching for games played by South Dakotans and games played in the state by non-SoDaks while visiting (i.e Governor's Cup). Tournament games are in the highest demand, but informal or even internet games are being collected. Please use the proper name (i.e. see birth certificate or USCF name used at uschess.org) and the handle on the given server if submitting internet games.

Submit by attaching to an email to Mark Derby. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please call for snail mail address if sending in a non digital format.

For more details about this standard chess format called (PGN) see Tim Mann's website. Download and install Winboard if you don't have chess software or try Arena that is feature rich and free see details at:  www.playwitharena.com

Chessmaster, Chessbase, Fritz and many other chess programs can save in the .pgn format as well. Thanks for taking the time and making the effort to send in your games.
