As some of you know, after the state chess, Rohan and Roshan participated in the 2012 U.S. Elementary Chess Championship (May 10th – 13th) @ Nashville, Tennessee, USA. All games held at Gaylord Opryland Resort and we stayed there itself for convenience. Finally we are all back in Seattle last night after the 4 day long games..
Good news is that, both the Kids won few prizes…
