On Sunday February 23, a group of 15 Q300 kids and their parents braved 10 feet of snow and -30F temperatures (obligatory 2020 “winter” joke) to play in the Packer scholastic tournament in Brooklyn Heights. It was a very enjoyable experience – well-organized, with a great slow-things-down vibe – nobody ever felt rushed. When all was said and done, we had some pretty good performances:
– Classic (K-12 U1300): 4th grader Eric Winsan won first place with a 3-0 score
– Primary (K-8 U800): 2nd grader Galina Shchukin snuck a 10th place with 2.5 out of 4
– Juniors (K-6 U400): 5th grader Abigail Chung tied for 3rd (3-1), and and 6th grader Julia Leopando took 9th place with 2.5 out of 4.
