What a wonderful event!

I want to thank all the Tucson Chess parents who took the time to drive to Gilbert for the weekend of April 21st and to the organizers for running such a smooth event.

This year the State Championship again included all K-12 grades both in Individual and Team formats and I have to proudly say many Tucsonans as well as ACFS students and players I individually coach did awesome.

Many of you came home with big smiles and trophies, medals and plaques to match it. Not to mention some toys K-1 students got for just being there.

Many Tucson teams won top honors also, some successfully defending their titles obtained last year.
Quite few players also proved they are also very quick witted- besting the best in the Blitz shootout held on Friday.

Here are some of the most noteworthy results from my stand point:

So thanks again to AZ Chess Central and all the dedicated coaches and parents for helping this wonderful and memorable event take place.
