Happy 21st ANU Schools Chess Championship

I'm spending the next two days helping run the ANU Schools Chess Championship. This is the 21st year that the event has been held, which I think is pretty special. Almost all leading ACT junior players have taken part in this event over the years, some even reaching double figures in terms of events played. I've attended most editions of the tournament (missing the odd one here and there) and the nice thing about the event, is that it is more of a fun get together than a super serious event. Of course winning is nice, but I think most kids are just happy to get the day off school to play some chess!
