Friday, 27 December 2013 10:32

The town of Ruzomberok, for the 2nd time in row, has hosted the final tournament Slovak Primary Schools Rapid Chess Championship. Organizational team of the Chess Club Ruzomberok around Marek Zelnicky had managed difficult task for grade A with three stars. This is also the number of them on place where the event has been held. Thus there was *** Hotel Kultura with its areas of saloon and atrium that participants used for the play and rest. Besides bad snowy roads, all 60 registered participants arrived in advance (!) and I am confident about no one was upset, when coming home. After all, every participant brought home certifications of participation and gift prizes as a memory for the event. Lunch and refreshments were given to all players but accompanying persons as well.
