Chess Game Day @ The Dali Museum

Thursday March 29 – Chess Game Day @ The Dali Museum WAS A HUGE SUCCESS

Partners: US Chess Federation, Woman Grandmaster Jennifer Shahade (WGM),

 Chess was played from 10 am till 4 pm while lecture on Marcel DuChamp  was given by Jennifer in the theater. There was hula chess demonstrated and kids also hula hooped while playing chess. The USCF was represented by Carol Meyer, Executive Director.  Several hundred people watched and played! At 6 pm we had three presenters, FM Cory Acor, WGM Jennifer Shahade and Antony Gospodinov give a 20 board Simul.  Gave out prizes, including a family yearly pass to the Dali Museum for each of the 20 boards. I had a GREAT time!!
