The Autumn Knight 2017

With the extended summer-like weather nearly measuring 80 Fahrenheit degrees, nearly 80 youth chess enthusiasts battled in the chess tournament held at Shady Grove Elementary. There were plenty of new and old faces both amongst the sun-tanning audience of parents as well as the players. It is so rewarding to see smiles across the board, literally!
