CHESS MERIT BADGE TOURNAMENT PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Sat, Apr 18 2015 (22:49)
On April 18, 2015, Dr. Alexey Root directed a Chess merit badge tournament from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (12:30-1:00 p.m. lunch break) at the National Scouting Museum. Requirement 6 was covered. (Previously, on April 11, Requirements 1, 2, 4, and 5 were covered and Requirement 3, the part about teaching chess to another Scout, was done by the Scouts on their own between April 11 and 18.) As on April 11, Dr. Root was very impressed with the Scouts. They took playing, notating, and analyzing their games seriously. Scouts were required to do a post mortem with each opponent after each game, with Dr. Root overseeing and commenting on those post mortems.

And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
