About the event: This is a valuable team building opportunity - we (the Chess Team) really don’t get together all that often, outside of tournaments. This will allow us to put some names to faces, hang out, and chart the path forward. For new kids/parents, it will give them a chance to get all their questions answered, and bond with the group in an informal setting. We will have numerous chess activities for the kids - a puzzle solving contest, games vs. one another, a “blitz challenge” vs. coaches, and more. We will also present our vision for the year 2019-20 and beyond, including team training sessions, and the unveiling of the brand-new “online learning” NYChessKids portal - something Saudin and team have been working very hard on.
