As always, the State Finals are a highlight of the year. This year was particularly exciting with 2 teams finishing equal first in the Tasmanian State Finals!

Well done to Cygnet Primary and St  Mary’s – both small regional schools who have come from nowhere to do outstandingly well. Scotch Oakburn have put a lot of effort in to chess in the past few years and it showed, with them dominating the Secondary event.

It was nice to get some ABC TV coverage of the event:
