British Championships and Upcoming Chess
Good luck to all the Essex Juniors at the British Championships which started this weekend. We have 17 juniors playing altogether in the different sections. The easiest way to follow their progress is via the “Essex at the British” link at www.essexchess.org.uk
I am delighted to say GM Chris Ward had such a good time at the Holiday Camp he has agreed to come to our next Train and Play event in Chelmsford on 24th September. Online registration is open at www.britishchess.co.uk
The new chess grades are out. Always an exciting time – particularly for children getting their first ever grade. Click on http://www.ecfgrading.org.uk/new/menu.php
Below is a photo from the Holiday Camp last week. CJCC’s Maheep is concentrating hard in the foreground in what was a friendly game while Theo and Ben are across the room in the distance. One thing the players did was record the games they played in the team competition so we could analyse them afterwards which is what I’m doing with Jaideep and Isaac.
