Chess Team awards.

Our chess sessions awards were given out at Leavers assembly this week with recognition of contributions to great results at the events our team attends and great chess played in our lunchtime and masterclass club tournaments.

The overall Joint winners this year were Fabio and Ade.

Congratulations to them and all the prize winners.

Thanks again to our amazing volunteer chess tutors Stewart Good and Bill Hynd.

We hope for an even better year next year and Mrs Honeyman challenged the girls of Dalry to try and be sure we don’t only have boys in the winners next year. So come and try chess and show the boys a check mate girls.
