Discovery Bay Getting ready for the Hong Kong Inter-School Chess Championship

January 23rd, 2013

Being the local chess club, Caissa obviously has quite a lot of players who go to one of the two Discovery Bay  international schools, Discovery College or Discovery Bay International School.

Like last year with this tournament, as well as with with the ESF Quarry Bay School organized Primary Championship, Caissa will be facilitating some training for the Discovery College players in the coming weeks.

Last year Discovery College participated just with 1 team and it was a tough ride, but with 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, the team ended decently on 32nd place in this strong tournament.

This year we have already 16 players registered to participate and Discovery College is about to arrive with 4 teams in the Primary section!

Of course we also hope DBIS will be assembling a team – from Caissa we wish them just as much success.

In any case, for the fledgling Discovery Bay chess community we already have something achieved by coming in with 4, 5 or hopefully 6 times as many students than came in from Discovery Bay last year. That prize is already ours …
