This year, the chess competition was rejuvenated by conveners Zac Grady and Kayne Croft.  The Cromwell "XTREME Chess Team" has put in a lot of effort, with the results reflecting this. With a huge improvement from last year, the team managed to draw with Women's College, Emmanuel and Union, who are strong opponents usually in the top places of the competition. Winning against Grace College put Cromwell through to the quarter finals. An unfortunate loss to Emmanuel meant Cromwell finished 6th place. This year there was an amazing turn out of supporters and 6th place is a big improvement on previous years. A big thanks goes to all the supporters, our Cultural Convenor Switch and to the players for everything they have contributed to "XTREME Chess 2016" team.
