Burroughs Chess Club Begins!
Monday, December 02, 2013 7:25 PM

Burroughs Chess Club is starting up again.  For December, we are going to have two informal sessions, Friday Dec. 6 & Friday, Dec. 13. Both sessions begin at 3:40 and end promptly at 4:30 p.m.
 
All students of any skill level are welcome to join us.  These two Friday's will feature informal chess playing, focusing on teaching skills to newcomers and having the more experienced kids get back into the game.  To participate, please sign up here.  Your teachers will send kids who have signed up directly to the cafeteria on Friday.  Parents must pick up their child no later than 4:30 p.m. (Students registered for Minneapolis Kids on Fridays will be sent to that program.)
 
Chess Club will begin formally in early January and continue into March. At that point, we will have organized chess lessons and score keeping of student games.
 
The Burroughs After School Activity Agreement must be signed and returned on the first day of Chess.
 
Though these are initially informal sessions, we still need 8-10 parents to help set out chess boards, supervise the kids and then collect and put away the equipment.  So please email Roger Rose at rprose5321@gmail.com to let him know you can volunteer.
