Checkmate! Noteworthy Moments from our November 16th Chess Club Meeting


The November 16th club meeting was one for the record books. Kudos to Ava for expertly navigating traffic to get us to Burger King and kick-starting the proceedings. We also warmly welcomed our newest members, Tudor and Josiah. Their courageous step in challenging experienced club members deserves applause.

Ava tapped into her kids' underused account to introduce exciting chess lessons. The response was overwhelmingly positive. New members Eden, Jimmy, Josiah, and Tudor had a productive session, learning about stalemates and how to execute a perfect King and Queen checkmate. It's heartening to see their enthusiasm for more lessons in future meetings.

Now to the tournament results: A total of 10 players took part. Leo proved his mettle by winning all three matches, but the evening star was undoubtedly Jimmy, whose rating took a phenomenal jump of 94 points! Milo and Serena also enjoyed victories, each tasting success in two games.

Please note that due to Thanksgiving, there will be no chess club meeting next Thursday. However, players can join our club meeting at NIC this Monday at 6:00 p.m.

Mark your calendars for our next big event - the North Idaho Scholastic Chess League tournament on November 28th (4:00, CDA Public Library). If you didn't participate last month, pre-register on the Idaho Chess Association website. We hope to see you there!
