A Recap of the Night: Unveiling the Chess Masters at Beginner's Club Meet

Last night’s Beginner’s Chess Club Meet was a grand success! We witnessed some brilliant moves and strategies from players at all levels. A huge applause goes to Logan, who dominated the board with an undefeated 3-0 record to claim the top spot. Milo and Jason followed closely with a 2-1 standing - a testament to their skills and determination.  Eden, Tami, and Josiah, although they had a tough night with standings of 1-2 and 0-3 respectively, brought their best game to the board. Their performances remind us that each game, win or lose, is an opportunity to learn and grow.  Special mention goes to Tami, Eden's mother, who joined the ranks and showed us that chess is a game for all ages. Her participation brought a joyful, family element to the meet and set a wonderful example for other parents.

A Thrilling November 30th Meeting at the 12U and Beginners Chess Club

  The 12U and Beginners Chess Club session on November 30th was a testament to the enduring spirit of chess. Held at the local Burger King, it was a night of intense competition and camaraderie that saw the Davis brothers, Logan and Milo, stand out unbeaten in their games. Under the expert guidance of their father, Nathan, who also coordinated the games, the brothers demonstrated skill and strategy beyond their years. Nathan's invaluable insights and tips during the play were instrumental in helping not just his sons but all participants refine their tactics. We were delighted to see Eden and Josiah, two of our promising players, engrossed in improving their game strategies. A picture of their engagement, which was graciously shared by Tami, is a testament to the focus and dedication of our young club members. As winter sets in, we're keen to keep the warmth of our Chess Club alive. We urge everyone to brave the cold and join us at our next meeting on December 7th. Here's t
