Spring EOM Leg 1: April 25th (Sunday) Sheung Wan
A new season of the End of the Month Tournament has started in March. Spring 2021 EOM will be played in March/April/May. All our students from Stepping Stones 2 to Step 3 from Sheung Wan, Discovery Bay, and private and online students as well as all our school ECA students are invited to join. External players are more than welcome to participate.
Entry fees in this event will be donated to Alzheimer's Research
Entries are STRICTLY limited to the first 30 registrations in each group.
Players will be assigned to a fixed group for the whole term and play for medals and trophies in their group. On the tournament day each player can face players from another group (from a higher group if the player is doing well, from a lower group if doing not so well). In the unlikely event that a player need to change group during the same cycle, his score from previous events will be adjusted (-1 point when moving up, +1 point when moving down)
The groups will be assigned based on previous tournament results, the player's Step level or other form of assessment by the Caissa coaches.
How does it work?
For every group, the winner, 2nd place and 3rd place (depending on the size of the group) of each EOM event receive a medal. The players at the end of the 3 months with the most points will be the Spring 2021 EOM Champions and receive a trophy (best 2 results of the term will be considered)
At each monthly EOM we have also some smaller prizes. Focus is on social chess with a flavour of competition as a friendly atmosphere is a key feature of the EOM.
The EOM is not suited for players who have several years experience playing tournaments. Players are welcome up to maximum Step 3 level.
The second leg of the 2021 Spring Cycle will be played on Sunday April 25th at our Sheung Wan Centre, divided in two groups:
Groups C/D: 13.30-15.30
Groups A/B: 16.00-18.30
Registration will be closed on April 22nd or after reaching 30 entries in each group, whatever happens first.
No parents or carers will be able to stay in the premises during the event.
A health declaration form should be filled up by any parent on the day of the event.
