Chess for Success

A strong memory, concentration, imagination, and a strong will is required to become a great chess player.  -  Bobby Fischer

                          “This is fun!”

“Can I move here?”                                                  

“I’m thinking.”              

                                              “b1 to c3”

“Checkmate!"

These are just a few of the exciting remarks that can be heard when our  We have Griffin Center, DeShields-Robinson and Roosevelt ChessClubs are in session.  On April 21 they gathered with other Chess Clubs in the area for an inspiring evening  and are now looking  forward to a tournament soon.  Besides being lots of fun we’re expecting to see an increase in reading and math scores as well as assisting with character development. 

Thank you, Mr. Peterson and the YMCA.
