Robert Bemben & Robin Ray will, again, mentor our chess club, the Chess Gang. The club is open to young people from ages 8 and up. The Gang meets on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the Program Room with the last after-school meeting on May 19. The last monthly “Family Night” and tournament will be Thursday, May 14th from 6:30-8:30 p.m in the Carnegie Building (the old library). Participants need to bring a sack dinner. Water and apples will be available for snacks. Participants may bring their own drink (No Glass Please!) or snacks if they so desire.
This is a drop-in activity and it is free. Popcorn and “bug juice” will be available for snacks.
The emphasis will be on open chess play with some instruction, with older players assisting younger ones, depending upon their needs. Players of all skill levels are welcome and are encouraged to bring chess sets from home if they have them. Adults interested in assisting should call Ron Fowler at the library, 231-758-3123.
