Results AQE Habeeb Memorial 2007

The 2nd Annual Habeeb Memorial 2007 now complete, I want to thank all those who were able to support the event and those who participated.
The Encourage Awards go out to Jessica Collins, 2nd Grader at Buffalo United Charter, and Michael Edwards, 5th Grader at Martin Luther King Jr Multicultural Institute #39 and both are members of The Urban Knights Chess Club that meets every Wednesday nights from 5:30pm till 8pm at the Frank E. Merriweather Jr Branch Library. For their efforts they received new scorebooks to record future chess matches.
A combined Scholastic section produced many fireworks over the chess board. Rook and King v. King, Queen and King v. King situations were the theme of the day.
