Here is the message I sent out to our neighborhood listserv.:
joined a chess group last February. Last week I had the most amazing
experience when I went to the Austin chess tournament at the Salvation
Army Post on Cumberland St. A huge amount of children showed up! Their
parents were hustled into a room far from where the children were. Kids
ran to get a seat where the chess sets were and silence descended for
the next few hours. Adults were playing also but the kids were
incredible. There were four year olds playing their equals - adult or
child (one of them me) and they were totally engrossed! Most of these
children were Asian. These children were serious. If I forgot to hit
the clock after a move, I was glared at by my infant opponent who did
it for me! If you have a kid interested in Chess, please contact Adrian
at the address above. It's all free. Every Sunday evening at 6:00 pm.
You could check it out this evening. Guests are welcome and can even
play. There is another group on Monday evenings at a further away site.
The regular chess classes are not crowded. Everyone gets to play, and
it is so much fun. Bobby
