The Autumn Knight galloped throughout Phoenixville on a chilly November day witnessed by 86 gifted kids to the chess field. This was the return of the intellectually brave, persevering through the challenging days of Covid and overwhelming political squabbles of governors. With the recent days of cheering on the splendid achievments of our Phillies and Eagles, attention has shifted with the regional parents eager to see their children become masterful chess players while making new friends. We salute you all!
