It sounds like your kids played some great games. What a heady feeling--to be 1600something and beat 2 experts. When it happens for me with only 1, I am over the moon. It's great to see so many photos of so many kids joining in.

I think it's most important that your kids have fun and learn how to use discipline to achieve results through chess.

Yet, I am hopeful enough to imagine what an amazing thing it would be if you spawned a goodish number of chess adult chess players who offered strong competition in tournaments and helped the chess federation/clubs grow once more.
