Final Standings, Concord-Carlisle April Scholastic Ladder – 04-07-2019

Fellow Concord-Carlisle Scholastic players,

 

We wrapped up the 2018-2019 Scholastic season at Concord-Carlisle Chess Club with our 3rd Ladder. The number of players who participated went up to 22 players, up from 14 players in February. Thanks in abundance to David West of Carlisle who helped Concord-Carlisle Chess Club institute the Ladder Format for the first time anywhere in my tenure as TD. After a rather bumpy start, it has emerged a great success.

 

Special recognition to my two Newton students Max Zuckernik and Erik Shin who both got 2 Points. Although they did not place, they nonetheless saw both of their Ratings go up. I am proud of these two as representatives of our Newton chess classes at F.A. Day Middle School.

Final Standings Concord-Carlisle October Scholastic G/30 d5 – 10-14-2018

Fellow Concord-Carlisle Chess players,



For our inaugural 2018-2019 Scholastic tournament at our new location of Concord-Carlisle High School, we successfully fielded a squad of 33 players. This high number of players was enough to allow us to field an unplanned separate Section: U400. All qualifying players were given the option to transfer into this new Section, and eight chose to help create it.

The new location presented a few challenges with both space and timing, but overall appeared to work very well. It was an attractive site with plenty of space nearby the playing room both inside and outside the library.

Four of my students from Newton Community Education chess classes – Toby Harrison, Jacob Rubin, Max Zuckernik, and Erik Shin – were among the players, and Toby won first prize. I am pleased that NCE was so amply represented.

The final Standings are below my signature.  Photos are on the Bay State Chess Kings Facebook Group page, which I hope all of you will join.

Winners:

Over Age 11:

1st Place: Ryan Sun
2nd Place: Leonard Sweeney-Barrett
3rd Place: Holden Chalfant
Medal: Kaustubh Kislay

Age 11 & Under;

1st Place: Tobias Harrison
2nd Place: Annabel Kohler
3rd Place: Sabrina Li
Medals: Milan Castellino, Sarayu Mudundi

Under 400:

1st Place: Mathew Jacob
2nd Place: Malin Kuo
3rd Place: Eilam Kuo
Medal: Alexander Skulte

We appreciate everyone’s support as we transferred our operations to the School, and we look forward to future Concord-Carlisle Tournaments.

Final Standings, Concord-Carlisle March Scholastic G/30 d5 – 03-25-2018

Fellow Concord-Carlisle Chess Club players,

                Tremendous gratitude and appreciation to the 44 players who turned out in record numbers at the Concod-Carlisle March Scholastic G/30 d5. Even after getting ten tables ready with twenty boards, we had to add two more! (A good problem to have.) Special thanks to Matt Kamon for all his help with organization and especially ordering in the late afternoon pizza. Our combined efforts in marketing evidently paid off big-time.

                I would like to acknowledge one player, Kaiya Smits, one of the Medalists in the Age 11 & Under Section. She will be playing in the Mass. Girls Championship at Boylston Chess Club this coming Sunday 4/1/18. We are glad she played and wish her the best of luck in the Girls Championship.

Winners:

Over Age 11:

1st Place: Henry Booth

2nd Place: Ashot Melkonyan

3rd Place: Lucas Kamon

Age 11 & Under:

1st Place: Sritan Devineni

2nd Place: Holden Chalfant

3rd Place: Franklin Lewis

Medalists: Frank Yun Xu, Kaiya Bridgit Smits,Sriaditya Vaddadi, Justin Lang Sun, Joshua Lee

                Everyone please mark down 6/10/18, when it will be nice warm weather at the beginning of summer, for our final Concord-Carlisle Scholastic of the season.

                Let’s make it even bigger than this one! See you over the board.
