Mr. Smoulder, his wife Angie and their 3 sons, Jadon, Noah and Eli, live in our community and the boys all attend RLSD. You may remember Jadon and Noah from an earlier news article written by Terry Guilliams – Many Firsts for Ridgewood Chess Club.
The brothers were the first ever siblings to compete in the Spring Open Chess Tournament which has been going on for 33 years now at Ridgewood. Although Noah gave is older brother a good challenge, Jadon won the best of the three game tournament. We are pleased to have Mr. Smoulder join our Ridgewood Team in providing support for our students and the Ridgewood Community!
