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.
