Ray Chess Players are "All Stars"

Happy New Year to everyone, and congratulations to Ray chess players Karen Dai (4th grade) and Allen Dai (1st grade), who each earned the title of "CPS All Star" at last week's holiday chess tournament at McCormick Place.

The tournament was part of the mayor's holiday sports festival, held annually during the last week of the year, while school is out. This year, for the first time, chess was included.

Did anyone else from Ray attend the tournament? If so, please let us know.

Update (01/08): I understand Ray 4th-graders Shawn Kim and James Liu also played at the tournament. Thanks for representing Ray, guys. Pictures here, at John Buky's site.

Btw, how about a photo of this fortress of a building?

You can see a shot of the castle here. The photo can't do the thing justice, but it's an imposing edifice, take my word for it.

Thanks for your kind words, gents.
