Mount Boucherie Secondary School is hosting a fun chess tournament for beginners who want to learn the strategic game and take part in the tournament next weekend.

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.

Tournament directors Luke Campbell and Chris Laurie will ensure students will be paired to kids of the same grade or opponents of equal ability. Games will be continuous.  

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.

Organizers are looking for prizes for the event. If you can donate something contact Chris Laurie at claurie@sd23.bc.ca
