HIGH SCHOOL CHESS MEETING TWENTY PDF Print E-mail

Before volunteering for Denton High School chess club today, I was at UT Dallas to receive The President’s Volunteer Service Award, Bronze level. That award recognized that I volunteered between 100 and 249 hours in 2010, much of it teaching chess! I sat next to Saheli Nath, who was also receiving a Bronze-level award. The high school chess club meeting today was mostly casual games. I played against two students, who reached a playable endgame by consulting with each other on every move. That is, every move they played was carefully weighed and options considered. In their case, two heads were better than one. We ran out of time to finish the game.

At the meeting on January 21, Denton High School (DHS) chess club members discussed our goals for the rest of the year. DHS wants to have club T shirts, run a non-rated middle/high school tournament, donate chess books to the school library, and participate in a chess and education event at a bookstore (to be held alongside my signing my books). Also, students elected a new officer to replace the absent Treasurer.
