Children's Chess Tournament

It is proposed to hold a one day tournament on 14th November 2015 for Secondary School children born between 1st September 1998 and 1st September 2004. There will be a minimum of five games and depending on entries there will be several classes based upon age, with prizes.

An entry fee of £2 will be payable. The competition will be limited to pupils who attend any secondary school in Flintshire or Denbighshire. The competition will start at 10am and will be held at Argoed High School, Mynydd Isa and will finish about 4.30 pm. Refreshments will be available.

This competition is intended to be enjoyed by all pupils, girls or boys, who enjoy a game of chess but are not outstanding stars at the game.

It is necessary for the organisers to know at least a week in advance how many children want to take part, so a member of staff will co-ordinate the entries for us. The closing date for entries is 7th November 2015.

Any enquiries should be addressed to the Buckley Mold Chess Club secretary Quentin Dodd.
