2011 CAHS Classic chess tournament was held on 2/5/2011. This is the biggest local scholastic chess tournament in Columbus Metro area. About 230 chess players participated in this tournament. Among them, more then 24 of them are my students. Nineteen of them won individual trophies:
1. At this tournament, only school chess teams can be represented. I am coaching the chess club at Deer Run Elementary. The Deer Run Chess Club was just established last semester. This is the debut of the Deer Run chess team in a local chess tournament. Deer Run won first place team trophy at the K-3 non-rated section by beating many veteran school chess club teams.
2. The students from the Dragon Chess Center won all first places for kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade in the non-rated sections. Some level 2 students are improving quickly and are moving up to the top.
