Congratulations to Emma Guo, the winner of the 2008 ACT Women's and Girls Championship tournament. Emma scored 6.5/7, dropping the half point when she took a bye to play in a soccer game. Second place was last years champion Alana Chibnall (6/7). Jenny Mason was the best scoring non-junior player (4.5/7).
It was pleasing to see that the event attracted a sizable field (approx 30 players). The other thing that pleased me was that the information for this report came straight from the pages of The Canberra Times (and not the chess column either!). Well done to everyone involved in the organisation of the tournament.
