Cornelius Rubsamen & Chet Gionson Rapids Co-Champions

July 4th saw lots of fireworks including chess battles at Mililani Town Center, 29 chess warriors met and two came out on top. Cornelius Rubsamen and Chet Gionson with 6.0 points out of 7 no losses! This was the biggest chess tournament so far this summer so there is lots more chess action coming with the Hawaii State Championships and another Mililani Chess Day coming up next month. See for more information on results as well upcoming tournaments.

The first scholastic chess tournament is scheduled for Sept 29th, at Le Jardin Academy so I hope your all practicing at your local nearby chess clubs!
