CJCC Dates to Christmas and Tournament Report
No club next week (23rd) because it is half-term. Back on 30th October with the dates up to Christmas expected to run as follows.
Older Group - 30th Oct, 13th Nov, 27th Nov
Younger Group - 6th Nov, 20th Nov, 4th Dec
Everyone - 11th December. Special Christmas Buffet.
The older players will be involved in an all-play-all tournament. The younger ones in a ladder tournament with upward progress down to learning, enthusiasm and a willingness to help others as well as wins.
We have quite a few new players just starting on their chess journey and it is important that everyone helps them on their way. This week we welcomed Aoife who joins a growing group of young girls at the club.
Over 20 current CJCC players took part in the EJCA Tournament at Moulsham Junior School at the weekend. All of them won at least 1 game and conducted themselves excellently but I'd like to mention 4 players who caught my eye.
Olga narrowly missed a trophy in the U12s. Maheep scored an impressive 4/6 in the U10s including beating 2 players graded over 70. Ben P chose to enter the top section and did very well to score 2.5/6. Nye showed great determination in his first tournament to score 2 wins in the U10s.
