The Royal Panthers just wrapped up competing in the 2018 NYC Chess Championship. This is possibly the most difficult tournament for our team – the majority of the kids played five games in a single day. Those who competed did our school proud, upheld our high team standards, and displayed the famed Royal Panthers fighting spirit!

If you want in on all this excitement the 282 Royal Panthers Chess Team’s next meet is the New York State Chess Championships. The 51st Annual New York State Scholastic Championships will be held from March 10-11, 2018 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. This competition features six games per player, spread out over the weekend, and has high-quality teams and players from all over the state, as well as from neighboring states. The Royal Panthers play in this tournament every year and have traditionally done very well there, often taking home both team and individual trophies for excellent performances. Many of our current team have played in this tournament in the past, and have fond memories of Saratoga Springs. http://chessevents.com/nyschol
