30th Annual Jack Taylor Memorial

Nov. 14-15, 2015

Victoria, BC

 

The 30th annual Jack Taylor Memorial took place in Victoria November 14-15, 2015.     The 30th annual is a nice big round number that not many tournaments reach and happily, the turnout for this event was also an historically large number with a significant number making the trip from up island and from the mainland to Victoria.   28 people played which was a near record number, smaller than only the 1994 version which had 29 players.   It could have been even higher as a few early entries withdrew due to concerns about a big storm that was moving into the area. 

 

An important factor in the success in the event was the generous sponsorship of the descendants of Jack Taylor who are gratified to see that he is still remembered in the BC Chess world.    In addition to sponsoring, some of the family made the trip to Victoria to visit the tournament and are pictured below.   Carole Treloar (Jack's daughter) was good enough to bring Jack Taylor's gold medal for winning the 1930 BC Championship (photos below).   By gold medal, we mean not just a first place finish but an actual gold medal!   BC's resident historian, Stephen Wright, went "wow".   He had known that the very early day's of the BC Championship  had the practice of giving out a gold medal as well as the engraving on the championship perpetual trophy but had not known that this had continued to at least 1930.   Those days are of course long behind us and current BC Champions make due with a modest cash prize and their photo in the BCCF bulletin.

As for the tournament itself, Jason Cao, the current BC champion,  was the heavy favourite of course but spotted next in line Roger Patterson draw odds by taking an early bye.   As their individual encounter was drawn, this proved to be the decisive margin of victory for Roger who took sole first with Jason taking 2nd.   Newcomer to the island, Frank O'Brien of Nanoose Bay tied for 2nd but took home the U1800 prize.   Rounding out the prize winners was Matthew Geng with the U1650 prize.
