2014 National Chess Championship

Palmerston North Boys High School
Finished 3rd this weekend National Championship which is a great result for our area with Jack James Staring with 5.5 points out of 7

Feilding Intermediate
Played very well most of the event only to lose 6 or 7 games on some very strange new rules for kids.

Manchester Street School
This was a big ask for our kids and I lost count on how many games we lose due to knocking over a pieces or moving into check.

Some of the rules where to hard for our kids and I have no idea why they had to play under International rules when it was a National event unrated as well.
