The QUEEN'S HARVEST 2018

The 2018 Shining Knights’ Queen’s Harvest was a hit with grateful young chess players and their proud parents.  Kids seemed to really enjoy themselves while testing their intellect.  There was exceptional respect for fellow players during the award ceremony: solid attention to the top winners and nice recognition to all participants.
