Two children's chess congresses - Saturday 25 June

 

 
   

Chess in Schools and Communities in conjunction with Ashton Community Chess Club held two children's chess congresses on Saturday 25 June at Broadoak & Smallshaw Community Centre, Broadoak Road, Ashton-under-Lyne for Year 2-6 and Year 7-11.

 
 

   

The usual array of medals, books and gift vouchers were awarded to winners and runners up in the different sections with many prizes being decided on the tie break system. In the final game of the day two girls had a play off with 5 minutes each on the clock in front of almost 100 spectators but despite their obvious nerves they still managed to play a fine game.

 

As schools will be breaking up in a few weeks time our next event will be scheduled for September but for those wanting to play chess each week Ashton Community Chess Club is open every Wednesday regardless of holidays from 6-30-9pm at the above venue.

 

CSC and the club are also hosting Summer Chess Camps on 28 & 29 July and for more information on these special events e-mail david@ashtonccc.co.uk

First Manchester Challenge Match

 

10.7.15 - Paul Keech (CSC Chess Tutor) arranged the first challenge match between East Crompton St James' Primary School and St Thomas' Primary School on the afternoon of Wed 1st July.

 

 

   

 
   

St James hosted the event involving 34 children from each school. The children each played two matches with many of the games ending with some interesting checkmates.

 

At the end of proceedings St Thomas' ran out winners 41.5-26.5. The winning school won a trophy and the players with the best scores all won medals. Each player also took home a certificate for competing.

 

The competition was played in a fantastic spirit and was enjoyed by all competitors. It is intended to run this as annual event with St Thomas' hosting next years with a possibility of extending to a full day.

 

The support from the Heads and all teachers was greatly appreciated in the lead up and on the day of the event.

 

Some of the children also did a recount of the day and I have a few of those if you wish to read them (or do something else with them)!
