A group of very excited students arrived in Melbourne for the Chess Nationals on the weekend. It has been quite cool, with us all wearing warm jackets. The dorms are pretty basic and Dylan and Morgan were sharing their room with a very inquisitive little mouse!
On Sunday morning, we walked into the city and after 9kms, arrived back home with a group of very grumpy kids complaining about the merits of exercise (Not!)
The Individual tournament was held yesterday, with Paddy and Jack drawing for third place, with Paddy taking out the third prize on a countback. A fabulous effort by all the team.
Today, the Nationals are under way with all the kids extremely focussed on winning, improving their game and ranking.
A fun Games Night tonight with Transfer Chess and a few other activities to relax after a hard day of concentration.
