Congratulations to all of the winners this year and thank you to everyone that came out for TBCC and made the event so successful and entertaining.  Special thanks to IM Ryosuke Nanjo, IM Shinya Kojima, Alex Averbukh and all those who contributed to help our kids perform well in games as much as possible and provided support, guidance, and encouragement throughout the season. 

The Club Championship had a good balance of focus and fun.  The kids relax a little during the lunch time after the first game of Day 2.  The students were all there to learn, but also socialize and enjoy themselves.

We are all really proud of the heart and effort of all these kids!  Thanks to all the parents and coaches who support scholastic chess in Japan!

Hope to see you all at the next Club Championship in 2017!
