Term 4 of Junior Club begins and Club Champs update
Junior Chess term 4 started with a strong turnout, for a night of fun chess including “hand & brain”. This term the students will be tackling the next level NZCF Badge challenge, with some students going for Level 3 (Bishop badge). This will be the highest NZ Chess Federation level achieved to date by any Kāpiti Junior Chess club members!
Round 4 of Club Champs was played this week in the Senior Club. Front-runners Ross and Levi fought out a tough draw, while Andy continued his great form of late, with a win over David. Ross still leads the field after 4 rounds on 3½, with Andy and Levi in second spot on 3 points, and a pack following close behind. There are three more to go, so still too close to call yet. Current results and standings here.
