MANCHESTER JUNIOR CONGRESS
BROADOAK SCHOOL, SALFORD
SATURDAY 7TH OCTOBER 2017
Almost sixty children took part, from across Greater Manchester. A big thank you to Rod Middleton and Leon Hunt of Bolton Chess Club who helped organise the event; and to the school for allowing us to use their premises.
For the first time we ran a senior section, using standard play times and All-Play-All formats. We ran three such sections plus the more normal Rapidplay for both experienced players and children new to chess.
The All-Play-All (Standard Play) and the Kings Sections (Rapidplay) were graded
Section A Kyle Pelling Tameside
Section B Sam Hunt Bolton
Section C Tarini Jayawarna Tameside
