Secondary Chess 2

The outright winner of the secondary tournament was Kevin Robbin unbeaten with a score of 7 out of 7, closely followed by Andrew Todd and John Dawson.

Andrew is a very keen chess player and organizes Chess at Bangor Grammar School. He brings a group of students from the Grammar and they are all doing very well. It is also nice to see families playing - we have a number of excellent chess playing families - The Pattersons, The Dawsons, The Robbins, The Guptas. Now to join these are the Todds with Andrew chasing Kevin in the secondary section and Samuel doing well in the lower Secondary and Peter having won this months Primary Section without a loss.
