The latest competition today was yet another successful event with 52 children and our two schools contributing 12 in total (6 from each). We had 3 newcomers (Maddison Smith, Austin Butterworth and Lucy Lowe). We managed to win 3 of the 6 prizes.

Looking at the 22 boards in the last round, we had nobody below board 14 and we had 7 of the top 10 players.
I have added all the children’s individual records to the website for your perusal. I know they will all be interested in that.
Including qualifications to national events we have now reached 50 prize winners since June 15 from 19 different children.
