To The Daily Sun,
I would like to everyone who made the 16th Annual City-Wide Chess Tournament on April 8th a success!
A huge thank you to our coaches — Ramsay Eliason at LHS, David Ross and Donna Marie Gamlin at ESS, Chris Beyer at WHS, Greg Schneberger and Sharon Frick at LMS, Ernie Bownes at PSS and Don Armstrong at HTS — for giving of their time and energy to keep chess in our schools.
Thank you, "DJ Jazzy Jeff Twombly", for being the MC and judge — you were great!
Thank You, Bank of New Hampshire and Laconia Police Department, for sponsoring this event, which provided trophies, medals, food and coaches gifts. Thank you, Funpot and Wayfarer Coffee Roasters for providing gift cards for our top division winners, Project EXTRA for making sure our chess club members had a snack during each session and Jack Aldrich and his Culinary Arts students for prepping all the delicious breakfast treats.
First place division winners were: Bryden Wright for the high school division, grades 9-12, Bryan Patten for the middle school division (grades 6-8) and Lex Condodemetraky for the elementary school division (grades 3-5). Congratulations, chess champions!
Thank you to all the spectators and families and especially our dedicated chess players who participate in this annual activity. This truly is a community event in which to be proud of!
Laconia School District
