Junior chess back on in Canberra

 The ACT Junior Chess League held the first face to face junior chess event of the year, the ACT Junior Lightning Championship. An enthusiastic group turned up to play in the 11 round event, with a mixture of experienced players, and newcomers trying the event for the first time.

In the end Charles Huang proved unstoppable, with a perfect 11 from 11. In second place was Larry Cheng, with Connor Amoore in outright third. 

The tournament ran smoothly (with no crying!), and the event followed the required health protocols. As we were playing at one of local Canberra High Schools, we did require masks for all players, but this don't seem to be a problem. Hopefully there will be a few more events on the calendar, especially as a warm up for this years Doeberl Cup.
