St. Patrick's Day Chess Tournament

Erin Go Bragh … St. Patrick was definitely shining down on Bishop Timon St. Jude High School and their chess tournament this past Saturday. What a great turn out for Mr. & Mrs. Bowers and their chess players.

Was it the game of “Chess” or the great “Rubens” that Mrs. Bowers was grilling, that brought out over 50 players? Only the Leprechauns will know…

We had a door prize drawing and goody bags for all the players. So needless to say we all want to give out a loud THANK YOU to Mrs. & Mr. Doug Bowers for arranging and hosting a great tournament with great food.


So here are the winners….
