Waitakere Chess Club hosted 120 kids for the West Auckland Primary interschools competition for 2019. Fruitvale, Blockhouse Bay and St Pauls get to go to the national championship in Palmerston North. Our thanks to Bob & Viv Smith for making this such a success.

This was year 42 of the tournament and with 104 entrants, playing 6 games in 3 days, this is probably the largest rated full weekend chess tournament in NZ.
