Summer EOM Leg 1: June 27th (Sunday) Discovery Bay
A new season of the End of the Month Tournament will start in June. The Summer 2021 EOM will be played over the months June, July and August. 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.
The End of the Month is part of the Caissa training. Therefore, priority registration will be given to Caissa students, even if external players are more than welcome to participate.
Until June 13th, only Caissa students can register with a discounted fee (50 HKD). After that day, the registration will be open to everybody with the full fee (100 HKD)
Entry fees in this event will be donated to Alzheimer's Research
Entries are STRICTLY limited to the first 24 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 needs 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 3 players at the end of the 3 months with the most points will be the Summer 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 first leg of the 2021 Summer Cycle will be played on Sunday June 27th at our brand new Discovery Bay Centre (Unit 19, 1/F., Block 2, Office Building, 96 Siena Avenue, Discovery Bay North, Lantau Island, Hong Kong), divided in two groups:
Groups C/D: 10.00-12.00
Groups A/B: 13.00-15.30
Registration will be closed on June 25th or after reaching 24 entries in each group, whatever happens first.

Parents or caretakers can drop off and pick up the children at start and finish of the event but are requested not to stay during the event.
