    Open Day it was!!!

    "It's really crowded inside"! I was told as I entered Noble Park Chess Club's hospitable venue! In the main hall, since the large tournament hall was too small to fit so many players, parents, visitors the two joint Victorian Champions FM Dusan Stojic and FM Chris Wallis were giving simuls to whoever wanted to try their skills vs strong opposition!

    Dusan in action!



    Chris in action!



    It looked that the dreams of the Club's stalwarts Domagoj Dragicevic, Mehmedalija Dizdarevic, Kai Tan and all the other hard workers, materialised once again, as Noble Park CC's image as a sporting and community force keeps on improving day by day!

    Noble Park Chess Club's President Kai Tan addresses players, parents and visitors:



    Domagoj Dragicevic announces the Club's Open... (details in the thread)




    Mehmedalija Dizdarevic; for three days he was visiting schools and community centres promoting the Open Day! The community responded :



    Youthful success looks like it's the order of the day for the suburban Club.

    Here is Savithri receiving NPCC championship's U1600 trophy:



    Here is my friend and comrade in arms Zach Loh proudly exhibiting U1900 success reward!



    The title hasn't yet been decided since the joint winners Domagoj Dragicevic and Justin Tan will have a play off match to decide the 2011 Club's champion.

    Here we see Dom and Justin holding the trophy!



    Don't forget the Club's Newsletter No. 2 coming out on April 9!

    Noble Park Chess Club Open Day

    We had a very successful Open Day at Noble Park Chess Club. We estimate more than 50 people came by to check out the club. Leonid Sandler (Chess Victoria Prez), Elliot Renzies, Peter Tsai and NY Wong were among the many visitors. They had many kind words of encouragement and we thank them for it.

    The showcase activity was a simultaneous simul with FM Chris Wallis and FM Dusan Stojic. I think everyone had a bit of fun and after that there was plenty of time for a couple of games of blitz. This was also the perfect setting for Club Prez, Kai Tan, to present to the winners of the Club Championship, shiny new trophies. Photos posted in this thread.

    Here are the photos of the Noble Park Chess Club Open Day...

    I've had problems where a picture that I've loaded disappears when I come back to look at it again. Figured out that I need to remove "www." from the img link for some reason. Here's post #17 fixed.

    Our inaugural junior coaching class started today with the first 6 students who were ably taught by Dusan Stojic.

    Despite an unexpected glitch with our coaching room being mistakenly taken over by a kids' dance concert , we quickly improvised and held our class in the open reception area - it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as the lesson was watched by many passers-by, and we had a few queries from them.

    Dusan did a great job and we are looking forward to increased numbers next week as word spreads. He was helped by his assistant, Zach Loh and even FIDE trainer NY Wong was there to give a hand. Thanks guys.

    Classes will take place on 16/4 /11 at 2 p.m. and then fortnightly thereafter - so the one after that will be 30 /4/11.

    Indeed, Dusan is great with the kids who also loved Zach's approach and of course barracked for him in his friendly blitz games. Here is Zach playing fast chess closely watched by his mate Kyle Gibson!

    Game 5: Dragicevic, Domagoj 1:0 Tan, Justin



    Game 6: Tan, Justin 0:1 Dragicevic, Domagoj
