John McRae Junior Summer Shield 2018

This year has started off slowly with a very small field of only 8 players – compared to 20 or more in previous years.

Most of our past Juniors have gone to Intermediate or Secondary School and many find their school work now too demanding to allow time for Chess.  Those who would like to play in our Seniors are discouraged by the late starting time and even later finish – with School the next day.

However in the past our Junior numbers have increased as the year progressed.
