Conquering in Concord! Luke Harmon-Vellotti is pictured in northern CA with Carmen Pemsler, our long time Vellotti’s Chess School student and girl’s state champion. They are currently in first place as a mixed double team where their points are added together to win money prizes. Like this post to wish them good luck!
Our “Shining Star” Student of the Month is Aidan S.! This little boy is super-smart, always teachable, and a good friend to the other students in his weekly Honors Chess Class. Congrats to Aidan and his wonderful family! :)
Congratulations to all the players in our 2013 “Happy Holidays” Chess Tournament! Players enjoyed pizza, holiday cookies, and a special treat bag to take home. Santa trophies, a raffle, and an exciting play-off match made the evening a lot of fun for everyone!
