Week 10 Report – Glen Rock
The Final Week of the Chess Summer Camp has broken all the records. We’ve never had so many students before! Everything went great thanks to coordinated work of all participants of the training process. The winners got their prizes and trophies, and every camper enjoyed chess, soccer, dodgeball, tennis, the time spent on the playground, the solving of chess problems, as well as math, art and music.
Spencer has become the winner of the toughest GM Camp tournament. Bowen won the Master Camp section, and Ilya and Jaden shared the second place. Debra, who started the tournament with defeat, got the first place at the Section 3 Day Camp as she won three times in a row. Neil and Maanas were the strongest in the section 4, and Brant has become a leader in the section 5. Adrian won in the section 6, and Miki got the second place. Finally, Dylan has become the winner in the section 7, while William and Sahiti, accordingly, got the second and the third places.
