Our 4th Annual CCLD Chess Challenge was held at the Steele Memorial Library on Saturday, May 16, 2015. Approximately 76 people attended, 47 of which were players. Participants ranged in age from 5 to 76 years. With generous contributions from Vincenzo’s Pizzeria and Chemung Canal Trust Co., we were able to provide pizza for lunch and purchase trophies, medals & pins of participation.
Winners were: 1st place Walter Buehl, 2nd place Michael Kane, and 3rd place Sam VanDyke.
We continue to find ways of improving the event each year and appreciate the support for this unique intergenerational event in our community.
The Chemung Valley Chess Club meets every Wednesday at the Steele Library to play games between 10:00am and 4:00pm. Chess is a game that commands the enthusiasm of persons of all ages and abilities, male or female. It challenges the mind and develops critical thinking skills. Anyone is welcome to join.
