Club update – 24 May 2023
The Junior Club is preparing for upcoming New Zealand Chess Federation Badge and Certificate tests. These are set at four levels of increasing knowledge and difficulty from Pawn to Knight, Bishop and Rook. This year, we’ll have our first juniors sitting at Level 3, for the Bishop Badge. Good luck!
Meanwhile in the Senior Club, the first leg of the annual Blitz Cup was held this week. Congratulations once again to Club Champ Levi, who went through 7 rounds unbeaten notching 6 wins and a solitary draw in the final round against many-time Club Blitz Cup Champ David Paul, who finished in second place. Results here. The final leg for the Cup will be played later in the year.
Our annual Kāpiti Open is on this Saturday. If you have not yet entered, there’s still time. See details here: https://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/downloads/2023/2023_kapiti_rapid.pdf. There’s over 40 entrants so far, with an increased prize fund over several grades. It promises to be a great day. Hope to see you there.
