Want to challenge yourself? Love the game of chess?
Bethel Public Library is collaborating with the DIG USA to host an in-person chess tournament on September 25 from 10-1pm. All children in grades K-5 are welcome to play.
Coach Joe(https://www.teamdigusa.com/dig-coaches/coach-joe-lessard/) , head coach of the Bethel Chess Class, will be the tournament director for this event. He will be doing a lesson right before the tournament starts and will be cheering you on.
There will be 4 rounds. Each round will have a time control of 20 minutes on each side. Everyone will play all 4 rounds. The top 3 players after the rounds will receive prizes!
And even if you didn't participate in the online chess classes we held earlier this year, come and participate. Chess is a universal game—something that we can all share together. This will be an amazing event for all the chess lovers in Bethel to compete with other players in their town.
DIG will provide chess sets and clocks
