The chess club has had another good year, one that has been notable for the number of players. A substantial fraction of the student body has been seen at the chess club at one time or another. As usual, Ashbourne had an opportunity to play others, besides the regular lunchtime meeting.
Specially pleasing this year was the wide range of ability. Besides many beginners who learned how to play, there were some very good players and many in the middle who just improved and started sparring.
