What a great way to kick off a new year of chess!
GM Magesh Panchanathan and WFM Anu Patil of Kings and Queens Chess Academy in Cary recently hosted their fun “Play Chess in the Park” event for the third year in a row. Lots of kids and adults enjoyed playing chess and solving puzzles outdoors. Beginners got lessons to learn how to play. Everyone had the chance to play against masters in a simultaneous exhibition. They also learned about the new events the Academy has planned for this year including:
- Friday Fall League (1300+): Sept. 27 – Dec. 20, 6:30pm, G/90;d5, $5/each for members, $10/each for non-members
- Cary Saturday Rapids (U1000): Sept. 28, Oct. 5, 26, Nov. 2, 16, Dec. 14, 21 4:30pm, G/30;+5, $20 members, $25 non-members
- Cary Super Sundays (1000+): Sept. 29, Oct. 27, Nov. 17, Dec. 22 10am, G/90;d5, $25 members, $30 non-members
Playing chess outdoors would be a great way for any club to kick off their year. It would be a fun way to celebrate at the end of year, too.
