GP7 at Sevenoaks School on Sunday 15th April

Just a reminder that the KJCA GP7 tournament is this coming Sunday 15th April at Sevenoaks School, High St, Sevenoaks TN13 1HU

It would be great to see our young chess players to the event and hope that it will be a fun day of chess and meeting up with friends.

Please register as soon as you can at:   http://www.kjca.org/event/181

Please note some of the arrangements we have made with the school:

We have use of the Solefields car park, which is in Solefields Road, opposite the entrance to the school. There are 60 spaces.  Once parked, there is an underpass to walk across to the school buildings and Block D which is where our tournament and parents area will be.  
Please do not use any other areas/spaces in the school complex to park your cars. KJCA will have parking attendants on hand to help out and ensure that we are using the correct part of the school grounds. 

In between the chess rounds, please remember that parents and carers have responsibility for their children. Primary aged children should not be left alone, unless you have agreed direct responsibility of another adult / parent, and please ensure that you know where they are and that they are playing safely at all times.

There is a grassy area close to the tournament / canteen building.  However, the school has asked that there are no footballs or ball games allowed in this area in case of any damage.  

It is great that we have a venue such as Sevenoaks School for our tournament.  It is a large and prestigious school and there are always a lot of different events and activities going on, as well as some school boarders and young people on site.  Please ensure that everyone treats all facilities with respect and do not allow the children to wander into other areas of the school. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday

Silver trophies for the Kent U11 Girls' Team

The Kent U11 Girls had a fantastic result at the EPSCA Final on 24 March 2018 at Cheney School in Oxford.  

The team finished 2nd out of the 12 counties taking part.  The runners-up position behind Barnet was secured through some determined and consistent play.  

After scoring 9/12 in Round 1 to lie 1st equal, the girls consolidated with 8/12 in Round 2 leaving them just 0.5 ahead of Berkshire in 3rd. A spirited 8.5/12 in Round 3 was enough to win the silver trophies. 

Particular congratulations go to team captain, Radha, and to Eleanor, Krisha and Hollyann who all won all their games. Well done also to our reserves who gained valuable experience for the years to come.  
The full team was: Radha Ratnesan, Roxolana Chaban, Stefania Iosub, Vaidehi Varma, Anya Srivastava, Zara Pepper, Laura Holmes, Eleanor Colesmith, Krisha Kamat, Teodora Iosub, Hollyann Reeves, Georgina Bruce, Scarlet Watson, Violet Davies & Sophia Ciobotaru.  

Thanks to all the parents who drove to Oxford and supported the girls over a long and tiring day and to GM Chris Ward whose wise counsel and inspirational talks spurred the girls on to their terrific result.
