Eleven children competed in this tournament with two children competing in a tournament for the first time. Clocks were used and some good games resulted

Outright winners of the tournament were Patrick Harris (first) Courtney Ryan (second) and Bryce Rosser (third)

In the second division, Courtney Parfitt came first, Alex Walker came second and Braiden Laskey came third.

While numbers were small due to the school holidays, the children who competed gained valuable tournament experience.

There were a few upsets. Charles Liebenberg fought a draw with Courtney Ryan, and Courtney Ryan defeated Patrick Harris.

Director of Play for the day, Allan Menham said interest in chess is increasing in the district and many schools have active chess clubs. Members of the Bundaberg Chess Club teach at many schools on a voluntary basis
