Project Scotland continues to fire on all cylinders.
Colin Paterson has sent me an update regarding the Lenzie Junior Chess Congress, 'the first Junior Tournament organised for Glasgow in many years. The tournament has been organised by Lenzie Chess Academy in association with Chess Scotland.'
'The new chess season started with a bang yesterday. Congratulations to our two overall winners, Liam Heron (Cumbernauld) and Jack Egan (South Morningside). I'll publish a full list of winners and gradings when I have them. In the meantime here are some photos of yesterday's action.
Many thanks to all the people who helped make it a special day at Lenzie Junior Congress today, especially Tom Moffat at The Pyramid, Gayetri & Aileen for doing the tuck shop, the arbiting team of Alisdair Maxwell, Ian Brownlee, Derek McAteer and Colin Paterson, our friends at Prestwick & Greenwood Chess Clubs for their financial donations and not forgetting Ashish, for the tea!'
This is all excellent and it is very clear to see that Colin is developing junior chess in Scotland in fabulous fashion.
