Event Description

The North Durham Public Library Chess Club is presenting a Chess Expo at Barnes and Noble, Brier Creek on Sunday, October 14th from 1 to 4. We will feature:
Free chess lessons
An expert playing 10 players at once
Quick play and mini tournaments
Information about local and national clubs and organizations
Information for educators
A book signing by Roz Katz
Prizes will be distributed to many in attendance.
This effort is a backlash against flat-line brain waves and “plugged-in” kids. We are trying hard to increase participation in chess locally, in order to enhance: critical thinking skills, cause and effect awareness, confidence and self-esteem in our kids. There are incredibly positive correlations with musical ability, math, reading – and best of all SAT scores – in chess-playing youngsters.
Please help us to advertise this day. Thank you so much for your attention.
For more information, contact: Roz Katz at 919-237-2002 or Conrad Conero at 919-479-7020.
