We had 13 teams participating in this year's District Cub Chess Competition, which took place at 33rd Oxford (Kidlington) HQ on Saturday 21st January. The teams of three Cubs competed against each other for the Chess Cup and a place in the County Chess competition. It was extremely close with only one point separating the top three teams:

1st Place: Wheatley A (10 points)
2nd Place: 3rd Oxford A (9.5 points)
3rd Place: 10th Oxford and 43rd Oxford (9 points)

The Wheatley A team will be representing Oxford Spires in the County Chess competition in Bicester on Saturday 28th January.

Other teams participating in the competition were: 3rd Oxford B; 4th Oxford; 33rd Oxford Jacala; 33rd Oxford Mowgli A and B; 43rd Oxford; Thame A, B and C; and Wheatley B. 

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to Tony who adjudicated for us.
