The KCAZ KNIGHTS FESTIVAL event in pics today…
We had low numbers so as to make it possible to observe the important covid regulations..a total of over 40 players are taking part.
Participants in the U20, U14 and U8 Sections enjoyed the first day of the event (3 rounds played so far of 1 hr aside chess). Players had truly missed real on the board chess!
We end our event tomorrow after another 3 rounds. Coach Lawrence Tavagwisa is helping with the Swiss Pairing and is the Chief Arbiter.
Others helping in running the event are Michael Musekiwa, Collen Chikwature, Gilbert Zinyemba.
It was a very hot day! A parent came forward and warm heartedly donated bottles of cool water to all players! And provided a bottle of sanitizer.
This helped to have a good tournament environment even for the newest participants. Thank you..very greatly appreciated!
Benson Mashanyare and Tavonga Dambamuromo are leading with 3/3 in the Snrs (U20 to U16) Section. Edith Muyambiri had her day of brilliance in this Snrs Section dismissing stiff competition from two very tough men in the 1st and 2nd Rnds.
And She went down fighting in the 3rd Rnd vs Benson. A great future is ahead of this young lady!
