Thanksgiving TOPTOPUS is successfully held at Times Coffee Shop!

Chet Gionson continues his winning ways, winning the 4 man double round robin with perfect a 6.0 points in the adult section and Charles Sonido wins the scholastic section with a perfect 7.0 points in a field of 11 players. All the players won something either a cash award or silver bars or coins and some even free entries to the next scholastic tournament to be held on January 16. 2007 on MLK Day. See for further details of this upcoming tournament.

Due to the the holiday weekend we had a smaller group, but expect the word will get out that "Times Coffee Shop" has a very nice venue for playing chess in Kaneohe and expect our next TOPTOPUS to be larger and will make sure I announce it sooner!

We not only had chess boards out in force were had a couple of nice Go sets that some players and even parents attempted to master the game of Go as well! There were some side games of 5 in row and capture Go. I also noted that Hikaru No Go was of interest to some of the young players!

We hope to see more players visiting the Windward Chess Club and Oahu Go Club! Check the meetup schedule for our respective club meetings times!

Hope to see you either playing more Chess or Go, hmmm or both at this two clubs!

Happy Holidays!
