Local Boy Competing in NYS Championship

Miles A. James- an 8 year old third grader at Olmstead #64 School, and Urban Knights member, will be traveling to Albany, NY to compete in the New York State Chess Championships over this Labor Day weekend.

To help improve his chances, I'm hosting a Chess Workshop for him and any other scholastic players who would like to join him each day this week, Monday August 24th through Friday, August 28th at the Wegmans on Alberta Drive in Amherst, NY. The workshop runs from 12:30pm until 4:45pm.

Scholastic players who would like to improve, will be taught checkmating patterns, tactics, strategy, and chess principles. Also each player will be paired up for timed games of Game/30, in which games will be recorded to be later reviewed by a Chess Coach. The cost is $20 per student per day, but discounts will be given for additional family members. Chess sets, boards and clocks will be provided.

If you would like to be invited to future chess workshops please reply to with full name, age and grade. We would like to thank those in advance, for your well wishes and your support. Comments can be sent to Miles to
