8 December 2012: District Chess Competition

The Cubs District Chess tournament took place at 2pm on the afternoon on Saturday 8th December. Nine teams entered, made up of Cubs from 3rd, 10th, 22nd, 33rd, 43rd Thame and Yarnton.

The 3rd Oxford A team won the comeptition with an amazing 21.5 points (out of a maximum of 24). The 10th Oxford team was in second place with 17 points and the 22nd Oxford finished in third place with 14 points. The 3rd and the 10th both have places in the Oxfordshire County Chess Competition in January.

Well done to Ayrton, James and Laurence from our Pack, who did extremely well considering how little chess playing experience they have - they finished in eighth place with 8 points in total - Laurence and Ayrton won two games each with James won three.
