Yanchep Two Rocks Chess Championship
Family Promotion Day

A brief history of :

This tournament commenced in 1979 thanks mainly due to the efforts of Syd Craythorn known in the Two Rocks area as Syd the Potter. He was involved with the Two Rocks Chess Club  which used to meet weekly in the local coffee shop. He made the trophies for the first few years and they were favourably received. He subsequently left the area and now resides in the Eastern States.

The Yanchep/Two Rocks district was established by Sun City Pty Ltd and that company provided some sponsorship and promoted the event fairly well. Norma Elkington, Secretary of the local Merchants Association assisted greatly and was instrumental in keeping the event going. Ted Fletcher was the C.A.W.A. Secretary at the time and was involved in ensuring that the day's activities were progressed and achieved.

The venue was the Two Rocks tavern with the chess event being held upstairs and the evening meal held downstairs in the Aloha room. This room overlooked the ocean and presented a most pleasing outlook.

Subsequent catering was the responsibility of Mr & Mrs Zemke and this continued until 1993 when Trishia Cox of the Blue Dolphin restaurant assumed responsibility.

2006 Yanchep/Two Rocks Allegro

The 28th Annual Yanchep/Two Rocks Allegro (9 rounds), held on Sunday 8 October at the Phil Renkin Recreation Centre was attended by 41 players in the open event all hoping to get their name on the Bob Pilgrim Perpetual Shield. In the combined Junior-Novice tournament there were 29 eager competitors comprising 26 juniors & 3 Novices.

It was a great day enjoyed by all and many thanks go to Bob Pilgrim, Tristan Boyd (DOP), Kelvin Taylor and Sven Reichard for organising the day. Thanks also to Denise Wilkins and Sue Cuellar for running the Junior and Novice groups.

Another big thank you goes to the sponsors - Phil Renkin, Martin Dickhart, Trish Cox, Club Capricorn and Sarah Knapp and family. Also thanks to Trish Cox's catering staff who yet again provided a delicious meal along with lunch orders and snacks and drinks during the day.
