On-site: Chess Club for Children
March 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
For Grades 1-6
Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
Whether you’re beginner or experienced player, join us at the library to learn from instructor David Beard, and build the skills needed to play a fun game of chess.
David grew up in Maine and was introduced to chess by his father (of course) and George Cunningham, who founded the University of Maine’s chess club. He played through elementary and high school, cumulating as the 1984 Eastern Maine Chess Champion. David brings a teaching methodology, developed by George Cunningham, to help beginning and intermediate players develop competency of the game. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn form the best!
Chess Club for Children will meet each Thursday at 4 – 5pm for 6 weeks: March 9, 16, 30, April 6, 20 and 27. You’re welcome to come to all or just a few. Please register for each class separately.
