I took over room 305 on the Saturday.
Some of the delegates were London-based, but others were from further afield. Ed travelled the furthest - he flew in from Belfast for the day!
This was the first time we had run a training day on the final Saturday of the Classic but the attendance was very healthy (12 people) and the delegates worked very hard all day.
As usual, we started with some introductions and ice breakers before getting stuck in to the series business of the day, including mini-gamnes, chess variants, classroom management, a brief history of the CSC, the benefits of promoting thinking skills via chess and a whole range of other subjects fuelled by open sessions based on questions from the delegates.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with my group and I hope to see them all at future events.
