Elementary students are invited to a Beginners Luck Chess Tournament at Mount Boucherie Secondary School on Jan. 29, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The event is open to all elementary age students. Parents of primary students are encouraged to stay and support their children.

The tournament will be held in the school’s cafeteria. Parents are welcome to use the staff parking lot on the day of the tournament.

It will be a fun first tournament. No ratings or results will be posted.

Breaks between games will be flexible and students can play as many games as time will permit. The cost will be $10, which includes snacks and door prizes for everyone. Medals will be awarded to top students in each grade.
