Play at McCormick Place next weekend
The very first post on this blog was about several Ray School kids who became Chicago Public School Chess All Stars by playing at the Mayor’s 2006 Holiday Sports Festival, held last year between Christmas and New Year’s. Well, here we are a year and 135 blog posts later, and whatayaknow it’s time for that blessed event again.
This year’s festival will again be held at McCormick Place, next weekend, December 28-30, from 10 AM to 4 PM.
If you’re one of those people who’s interested in things besides chess, you’ll find plenty to do. I couldn’t make it last year, and alas will have to miss it again this year, but I’ve heard it’s a lot of fun for both kids and adults, so if you’re looking for something fun to do next weekend, I encourage you to check it out. It’s free.
Details on the festival here; details on the chess tournament here. Call Renaissance Knights, organizers of the chess events, if you have any questions.
