January Pizza Party

We had a very successful and fun pizza party and chess training session last Saturday, January 23rd at Spicewood Elementary.  Over 80 parents and kids attended, learning more chess techniques to use and traps to watch out for at the upcoming Casis Elementary Chess tournament.

Gary Gaiffe and Josh Newsham, local chess experts and private chess tutors graciously attended and performed a couple of simultaneous matches against some of our students.  A big thank you to both of these guys for attending.

Thank you to Laura Reebe for coming in on a Saturday to allow us to use the library and cafeteria for this event.  Also thank you to the parents who donated drinks, snacks and supplies.

Here are some photos of the event.  If you have any other photos you would like to share, please email them to Chris Jones (chris@spicewoodchess.org)
