Children’s Chess Workshop

Attention children (and parents of children) who are in grades K – 8th grade!

Already know how to play chess, but could use a few pointers and/or some practice before participating in the annual Children’s Chess Tournament in March? If so, then you’ll want to attend this workshop on Saturday, February 15 from 10 am to noon. Please bring a standard chess set, if possible.

Registration is not necessary for the workshop, but is required for the tournament.
