Club news – 28 March

The first junior competition of the year got underway with twenty four students playing in the first two rounds of the blitz format event. Griffin, Jingwei, Sam, Yonatan, Devin and Isaiah, all made a strong start with a perfect two points from two games. However, it is still early in the competition with another 6 rounds to go.

Meanwhile in the Senior Club, congrats to Levi who took out this year’s Leo Eichholtz Board with 6 points (from 8), with David second on 5½ and Ross third on 4½. Final standings can be found here.  This week we took a break from competition chess with a fun night of hand and brain, before kicking off next week with one of the main annual events on our calendar, the Kingston Memorial. 

Two upcoming events to note: On April 18, we look forward to hosting the Upper Hutt Club in a friendly inter-club match. On May 27 is our annual Kāpiti Open. Entries are open to anyone, and details can be found here. We look forward to seeing you.
