|MSSA was founded in 1985 and continues to promotes board gaming, card gaming, esports and wargames as accredited sports.|
The draft calendar of events, at first, only takes into account provincial and national events due to such events having precedence over all other events.
Member clubs are also able to 'book' the hosting of Regional Championships. Regional championships are designed to hel-p clubs gain extra exposure, earn income, and promote the games that they encourage within their clubs. Games can only be played at National and Provincial Championships if such are either played at World championship level, or if having first been tested at Regional Championships. The rules apropo hosting of a Regional Championship may be found here.
Thus if no changes are requested by member clubs, and approved by the general meeting of member clubs, it is likely that the Calendar of events for 2020 will not change from that of 2019, and will look something like the following:
|JANUARY||Umpires’ Course - Gauteng|
|FEBRUARY||28th Old Edwardian Summer Championships|
|FEBRUARY||On-line Inter-school Provincial Championships|
|FEBRUARY||38th GAUTENG Provincial Championships|
|MARCH||Umpire’s Course – Western Cape|
|MARCH||24th WESTERN CAPE Championships|
|APRIL||Provincial Online Student Championships|
|APRIL||11th Provincial Online Championships|
|APRIL||Provincial School Championships for all provinces|
|MAY||Umpire’s Course – Mpumulanga|
|MAY||19th MPUMALANGA Championships|
|MAY||Selection Committee convenes to select teams.|
