9 Queens Action October 9, 2010 - Tucson, Arizona

National Chess Day in the United States is October 9, 2010.  Please support 9 Queens and its programs by coming out and participating!

A full day of fun events is planned for the community on the Second Annual All Queens Chess Day:

All Queens Tournament
Hey ladies- from 1-4 pm play in Tucson's only chess tournament exclusively for women and girls. There will be great prizes including custom Queen trophies and gift certificates from Bookmans! For more information email jhoffman@9queens.org.
Community Chess Experience
Calling all wannabe chess players- have you always wanted to play chess but never had the chance to learn the rules? The Community Chess Experience is just for you. From 2-4 pm, 9 Queens will offer free beginner chess lessons to anyone (male or female) interested in learning how to play chess. In order to promote chess literacy, Bookmans is giving out $5 gift certificates to everyone who learns how to play in the chess experience.

Queen for a Day
From 2-4 pm, come by to make your own chess crown at the chess arts and crafts station. Attention girl scouts: there will be chess activity patches available for all girl scouts who participate in any of the day's activities.
