Yesterday we had our West Region Tournament! It was a huge success and thank you to everyone who came out through the snow and supported us. Congratulations to all participants for doing such a great job!

Competitors participated in 4 rounds of chess, across two sections; the Grade 6 and under section and the Open section. The room was silent as the competitors focused intensely on their games. Advantages were gained and mistakes were made as everyone strived to be the top player in each section.

Obviously, not everyone can get a prize or place in the top three. However, everyone who showed up gave it a shot and everyone deserves recognition for their amazing work. Thank you to all of our participants and volunteers for making our 2015 West Region Tournament such a success and a fun experience for everyone involved.  We would also like to thank Cool Chess for donating chess pieces to Chess in the Library.

We’ll see you at the next Chess in the Library tournament!
