Part of the hoopla surrounding publication of the new Harry Potter novel will be a tournament of life-size chess games on July 20, hosted by the Renaissance Knights Foundation, at Oak Park's Harry Potter festival.
Games will be played on a huge chess board, with kids and adults acting as chess pieces while “special guests” call the moves from the stage.
It should be a lot of fun to watch—and to participate. If your child would like to play a chess piece in this event, get in touch with Renaissance Knights right away: RKNIGHTSCCC@aol.com.
More information here. And keep an eye out for a forthcoming e-mail about another event from Renaissance Knights that will interest Ray chess players.
