National Chess Day Scholastic Chess Tournament Results


National Chess Day was a huge success in Tallahassee. This past Saturday, we had an excellent turnout for our scholastic chess tournament. We had twice as many kids as I thought we would get. There were 24 students representing 10 different schools. We had two come from Birmingham, Alabama! All the kids were very well behaved and I can’t remember the last time I saw as much good sportsmanship as I did at this tournament. This was a new experience for many of the kids and the parents and everyone really made this a special day. I’m looking forward to having more scholastic events in the future.

Parents, thank you for bringing your children out for this day and waiting patiently as they played their games or waiting for pairings to be done.

Photographs from the scholastic tournament will be forthcoming in a separate blog post.

I also want to thank Gamescape for their great support and letting us hold our tournament as well as our Wednesday night chess club meetings in their store. These guys are great!

Everyone received a medal for their participation and we gave out 12 trophies. the following players received trophies in their grade categories:

1st place – Logan Smith (Imagine School)
2nd place – Benjamin Chen (Gilchrest)
3rd place – Clement Lee-Sursin (Cornerstone)
