Congratulations to all of the winners of the 20th annual Grade by Grade Chess Tournament held at the Western Fair on Thursday, March 29, 2012. We had 1,530 students from grades 3 to 8 compete in one of the largest scholastic tournaments in North America. A list of winners will be posted soon.
A tournament of this magnitude is difficult to run smoothly without the support and enthusiasm of volunteers. The tournament Directors, Mon-Fai Lee, Anthony van de Ven and Wai-Hing Lee-Bucknell would like to extend a huge “Thank You” to all of the volunteers; scorekeepers, Matthews Hall parents who helped at the snack bar, numerous parents and extended family, teachers, and school administration who spent the day with us.
A very special “Thank You” to the Optimist Club who co-sponsored this event with Canadian Chess Promotions as well as to the Optimist members who volunteered their time. We couldn’t have done it without ALL of you!
Thank you! Thank you!
