Goodbye Summer Scholastic


In one of our most anticipated annual events, nearly 30 kids participated in our Goodbye Summer Scholastic.  The kids not only enjoyed a great day of chess but also received a pizza lunch and a visit from the ice cream truck at the end of the day! 

CCFC instructor, National Master Arslan Otchiyev, was on hand to provide complimentary instruction to the kids in-between their games. Many of the players took advantage of the opportunity to learn from their mistakes.

Dominic Mulraine, Matthew Liew and Joseph Ho were the deserving 1st place winners in the K-2, K-5 and K-8 sections respectively. Special mention should be made to Lia Lavin, Ryan Boron and Alivia Emilien who all successfully competed in their first tournaments ever!

The atmosphere throughout the tournament was remarkable. Despite some tough losses and unexpected outcomes, all of the players displayed great sportsmanship making this yet another memorable event.
