Shelburne Community School (SCS) kindergarten student, Sebastian Kremenstov, and SCS third grader Luke Fitzgerald emerged victorious, with perfect 4-0 in chess matches, at the 26th annual John Balch State Chess Championships in Berlin last weekend. Sebastian trains with the Queen City Chess Club, QC^3 at Healthy Living in South Burlington. He is the second consecutive Shelburne kindergarten champion and the fourth consecutive kindergarten champion that trains with the club. The club meets on Saturday mornings from 8:30-10 am at Healthy Living and is free and open to the public. Kids from throughout the region meet to learn and play the game because they have fun. The benefits to their IQ, creativity, critical reasoning, memory, and focus are mere side effects. Please contact Paul Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about QC^3.
