intermittent thoughts on my life and work as the chess coach at IS 318, a public middle school in Brooklyn
Thanks for posting these Elizabeth. From the lack of coverage on the USCF web site, you wouldn't even know that there was an All Girls National taking place. It seems odd to me. Good luck to you and your students! Ellen (back in NYC where it feels like summer)
Good Luck to you and your girls in Dallas!
Well Ellen, for the record, they mention it here, but it's not exactly prominent. Where would we be without E. Vicary?
hows everybody doing and how many points does each girl have
What a happy looking bunch of kids. My daughter is about that age and has no interest in chess at all. But these photos would get her interested, I think, to see these cool, normal, smart girls having fun at a tournament.
All Girls' Nationals Results are posted on USChess.org in a fairly prominent place, but there's no story write-up & just one picture. It looks like section #2 consists of both the under 16 & the under 14 sections combined. Does this mean that there's a sagging participation for mid-teen girls?
Are blue chess boards becoming standard now? I'm seeing more and more of them.
I like green and brown better.
