Our end of term Christmas competition was played in an excellent spirit, where 20 junior players took part in 5 rounds of competitive chess. 

I am delighted to report all entrants arrived on time, sat down to play and give their all over the next 3 hours. 

There were two sections – a major and a minor 

Leo gallantly opted to help rather than play, to give the other competitors every chance of success. 

The level of chess was excellent and all players scored points in both sections. 

Major section 

Results:- 1st –  Marcel 4/5,  2nd – Nicolas 3.5/5 (on countback) and equal 3rd – Harry and Nathaniel both on 3.5/5. 

Inter and minor section 

Results- 1st -Neil 5/5,  2nd – Blake 4/5,  3rd – Filip 3/5 

Well done to all that competed in an enjoyable and fun day, 

Dee provided refreshments that disappeared faster than a poison pawn  

Medals were given to the winners of the event and winners of the ladder board competition which were Leo and Joey in the advanced section and Larissa and Alfie in the minor section. 

Eric gave the end of term/session prizegiving which was attended with the parents proud of the children’s achievements in playing chess. 

Photos of the event were taken including prize winners/all players with certificates and one with parents  It was a heart-warming and lovely way to finish the day. 

As always none of this would be possible without the support of Graham/Paul/Steve/Dee and yours truly. 

Just a reminder we start again in the new year on the 6/1/24 and in the meantime we wish all a very Merry Christmas.
