State U11-8 and October Tournaments – Take2!!

Updated October 16th, 2019

THE FIRST DAY OF THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS – MONDAY 16th DECEMBER 2019

This year’s State Under 11-8 Championships and the associated October 25 and October 60 Tournaments were disrupted totally around 9:15AM on the second day by a fire in the Fire Exit stairwell. Fortunately all the players and parents etc evacuated the building within 90 seconds and the fire brigade was just a few minutes away.

The Chess Centre itself was not damaged apart from a lot of smoke and soot and while most of that has been cleaned up, the carpets will need to be either steam-cleaned or replaced and some minor painting done. It was wonderful that no-one was hurt and very lucky that we were there at the time it happened else the entire building could have gone up.

 

The final day of the tournaments however will be be played on the first day of the Summer School Holidays – Monday 16th December – hopefully before any of the competitors fly off overseas or interstate etc. Those that cannot play will be compensated and prizes will be awarded depending on their standings at the end of the first day.

So, please find the current standings for all 3 tournaments – it should be an exciting finish! 

The Players will not need to buy pizzas etc as all that has been paid for.

2019 Secondary Girls Teams Championship

Updated October 16th, 2019

This competition will take place at the Chess Centre on Wednesday 6th November 2019 between 4PM and 6:30PM and will involve teams of 4 Secondary/Middle School girls playing 4 matches with all players having 20 minutes each per game. Each game can therefore take 40 minutes so 4×40=160 minutes, so it should all be done in around 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Schools that took part in the SAJCL Competitions are invited to send teams of 4 girls, possibly more than 1 team per school, and the winning team will earn the right to represent SA in the Australian Schools Teams Championship which will take place in Canberra on Saturday 30th November  and Sunday 1st December. 

The SAJCL will give each team that represents us in the ASTC $800 to help with expenses.

Schools wishing to enter a team should message or ring Alan Goldsmith on 0401 67 2481 to indicate their intention to take part.
