    Past Events

    Chess Tournament

    The Valiant Chess Tournament has concluded and we had an epic run by Virgilio Grande Garcia who won every match until the final match where he lost to Shri Agashe.  Therefore, Shri Agashe is the 2023 Chess Champion.. For fun, we had Shri play the Grandmaster, Marcus Bowie, in the advanced final match and Marcus won the Advanced Chess Trophy. Thank you to everyone who participated!

    Summer Picnic

    The Family Picnic was a huge success and we had such great turnout! Thank you to Shea and all her helpers for putting on such a great event! Check out the event video and beautiful photos at the link below!

    Smartini Hour

    Valiant hosted a virtual Smartini Hour where we socialized and played OpinionNation Trivia, a game where you guess the most popular answer from surveyed Americans. It was neck and neck for the first few questions but eventually a couple teams pushed ahead with their best guess! Our winners received an Amazon gift card and extra chances to win in the BIG quarterly drawing! We plan to host another Smartini Hour later in 2023, so stay tuned. If you attended, please fill out this quick survey!
