From the Archive (9)

Another dip into the archive.

I ran a number of Easter Chess Extravaganzas at the Links Primary School back in the 1990s.

Here's my Herald & Post report for the 1996 event. (Click on the image for a larger version.) And no, I didn't write the headline. That was always left to the in-house staff.

I remember buying a large amount of Easter as additional prizes. The children preferred to win them over the trophies and books.

An eight-year old Gawain Jones was already a force to be reckoned with. He is now a world-famous Grandmaster with many extremely notable achievements to his name, as player and author. Find out more at his website.
