FSCL All-Star Results - West Florida

Coach Willard Taylor sent this information to me and I am posting it here.

- let me take this moment to thank all the players, parents and coaches that attended this great event. Some said it was the best tournament they had ever attended...just thought I would bring that up.

  West Florida not only did great on results, but something even more important.... we had 82 players (265 in tournament) attend from  the West and that was a record for us.

  I was overwhelmed by your response, we had so many new teams go ( and win trophies ) it only proves to me that we are all doing something right.

  United Minds, North Tampa, Tampa Chess, Tampa Bay Chess and all the schools and clubs involved are doing a wonderful job of preparing our players for upper level Chess.

  It's great to see all the team work and friendships that these groups are developing.

  Now it's on to the National Grade Championships in Orlando, Nov 30- Dec 2nd at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort - Lake Buena Vista.

Here are some of the results from All-Stars:


  Kai Nelson, Mitchell Elem.  3rd place,  Berkeley Prep Team 4th place Academy Prep 5th place
