Wynberg Boys’ High School: Jamie Tindill Memorial Chess Tournament – click the image to view the full digital programme

“This Tournament serves to keep alive the memory of one of Wynberg’s best Chess players who died tragically while still at school. Jamie was a wonderful young man who had just been appointed as a Prefect at the end of his grade 11 year in 2007 but drowned during the December holidays.

He was held in such high esteem by the matric class of 2008 that they raised money to purchase some benches, plants and a plaque to adorn the outdoor chessboard. A new set of pieces was obtained and outdoor chess continues to be a vibrant activity before and after school, and during breaks.

To remember Jamie’s contribution to Chess and to honour his memory we started a short Tournament at Wynberg in 2010. Varying formats have been tried with either six or eight participating teams. This year we have eight teams (six players per team, 45-45 games, and an unusual, graded scoring system) in two pools of four. We trust that the Tournament will still be played in the same spirit and will do Jamie proud.

Thank you for accepting the invitation to be part of this event.”

Mr Larry Moser Deputy Headmaster: Wynberg Boys’ High School, in his welcome message to our visiting teams.
