It is a good time to be a chess player. Yesterday the New York Times featured a front page story about IS 318K- a Brooklyn middle school where the cool kids play chess so well that they recently won the High School National Chess Championship (think about it- one journalist compared this feat to a college basketball team defeating a team from the NBA). Next week, chess fans from around the world can watch world chess champion and male supermodel Magnus Carlsen on the Colbert Report.
Clearly, chess isn’t for nerds anymore; it’s for everyone. With that in mind, we are thrilled to announce that 9 Queens and Bookmans are joining forces to offer another monthly Chess Night for all of Tucson’s cool chess players and wannabe chess players. Starting April 19, 2012, this monthly event will be held the 3rd Thursday of every month from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Bookmans on Ina. Come by for a pick up game and fun!
