Meeting once a year for 6 years... for a game of chess!
On Saturday, May 3, 2014 the annual Washington State vs British Columbia International Scholastic Chess Match (Intermat) took place in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Each year top 2 rated players from each grade in WA compete against the top two BC players from same grades. The event is sponsored by Chess4Life and BC Youth Chess.
Thus, once a year, Naomi (WA) plays a game of chess with Luke (BC), for 6 consecutive years already! Sometimes they also meet at other local tournaments, and at the World Youth Championship in Brazil they played ping-pong, as Naomi played chess in the girls section.
Chess makes you persistent and dedicated to meeting other players!
BC won big this time, good for them! And for us it was a nice opportunity to stroll again down Vancouver's picturesque waterfront and visit again the famous Granville Island Market.
