Well, it’s all over for another year. What a wonderful event – to have 278 players leave on such a high after 2 days of solid chess. We really do love seeing how much the kids get out of the coaching, the interaction with players from all over the country (and NZ).

I guess the results are important as well, everyone likes to know who won!
