It was good to welcome so many first time players at Somerhill and it was also nice to see some players from outside of Kent and from as far afield as Oxfordshire. Some superb games of chess were played at all levels and this reflected on the excellent training being provided across Kent by our wonderful team of coaches and parents.

Many thanks to Schools at Somerhill for accommodating us and also a big thank you to the parents who helped before and on the day.

Our next Grand Prix will be held on Sunday 26th May at Sutton Valance Senior School, North Street, Sutton Valence, Kent, ME17 3HL, yet another beautiful Kent venue. This will be the seventh GP out of eight for the 2012/13 season. As usual you can enter online and we hope to see many of you there once again.

Also we wish our Kent junior teams the best of luck over the next few weeks!
