On September 10, 2010 Denton High School chess club had its second meeting of the academic year. Nineteen students attended. Meeting minutes are here. When I gave my lecture about the Scholar’s Mate, I was very impressed with the attentiveness and note-taking of the students. After the lecture, they eagerly debated (chess boards and sets out) what the best defense was for black. That is, what is the best third move for black after 1.   e4 e5 2. Bc4 Nc6 3. Qh5

Other than our planning meeting last spring, today was the first meeting of the Denton High School Chess Club. Minutes can be found here. When candidates made their speeches for officer positions, I found out that we have more USCF-rated players than I thought.  We have players with ratings of 1464, 1287, 1240, and 795. We hope to participate in a tournament in Irving on National Chess Day (October 9).

BORDERS BOOK STORE CHESS PDF Print E-mail

Today I attended the Borders Book Store Chess Club in Lewisville, Texas. FIDE Master Keith Hayward has run the club every Thursday night for 14 years. It's a great place to play a casual game of chess and enjoy a treat from the Seattle's Best Coffee. I invited my MOSAIC chess course students to try out the chess club, and four of them showed up. More than half the Borders players are under 18 years old, so my MOSAIC students fit right in.
