the way home; a really good innovation. The
kids passing chess sets between them across
the public bus also impressed the other

looking forward to their next chess events.
What impressed me was all
10 Classic players signing some chess books
the KEGS students had got at the bookstall
when they were in the auditorium waiting to
head onto the stage. The boys were chuffed
and it was really kind of them to take the
time a few minutes before the start of the
round. Please pass on our thanks to them
because little things like this make a big
difference to the experience.
A big thank you from all
of the boys who attended from the Judd

politeness and respect.
It was a great event

work organizing it.

I wanted to drop an email
to say how much the kids got out of today's
tournament and how excited and enthused they
were to be part of the day.

It was such a wonderful
day today. The 14 simultaneous games Lucas
played with us at the start, the 'Question

Congratulations to you

My very keen 5 boys came
away full of enthusiasm and they are now
asking how they might be able to play as a
team against other schools or play
individuality in tournaments.

organised, it was really easy for us, time
flew and the children in their words 'had
the best day ever, even better than
