Thirteen children attended the childrens chess tournament held on Thursday 30 September, including two competitors who travelled up from Maryborough.

As usual, competition was keen and the children played many tough games.

Top scorer for the day was Primary School Player Timothy Harris from Bundaberg who gained a grand slam win of eight out of eight games. He was closely followed by top Secondary School Player David Nelson from Bundaberg, with seven out of eight games. Third place went to young Patrick Harris of Bundaberg with five out of eight games, even though three other players also scored five out of eight games.

Some of the players in this tourney will be playing in the School Chess Finals in Brisbane in October. Some will also be playing in the One Day Chess Tourney to be held in Bundaberg on Saturday 9 October.
