Thames Ridge District Chess Competition

Chess Competition Shield
The shield for Thames Ridge District Chess Competition

The district chess competition was hosted by the 30th Abingdon Scouts on the 26th November at Abingdon Baptist Church hall. We had 21 Scouts participating which made seven teams. Due to the numbers and time available each game was limited to three minutes. It was a round robin competition where every team had the opportunity play each other. After all the games were played it was a draw on points between 1st Harwell and 30th Abingdon. One last game was played to determine the overall winners. Again, with the time limit imposed, of the three games played by the team’s first game went to 1st Harwell, second a draw and the third to 30th Abingdon. This mean the overall winners was joint between the 1st Harwell and 30th Abingdon.

Many thanks to all who helped organise and transport Scouts and of course to the Scouts who participated. We hope to repeat the event again in November 2015.
