Next Tournament

12th Annual Freedom Trail Festival 2011

The Archangel 8 Chess Academy and The Multicultural and International Student Affairs Office at Niagara University in Niagara Falls, New York, hosted a drop in Chess outing on Saturday, September 24, 2011 at the Earl W. Brydges Library located at 1425 Main street from Noon until 6pm.

Pictures dont show all the activites but the chess tables were active during the entire Freedom Trail Festival, which celebrates the history of the "underground railroad".

Canadian visitors from Niagara Falls and Toronto, Ontario along with New York City players stopped by for at least two trash talking games. It was fun to watch and play.

Pictured is Lanise who played 5th grader - Jillian, who finished her first chess lessons, arrange the pieces on the board, play a modified game and she was able to solve several Pawn Mower Rook exercises from International Chess Grandmaster Maurice Ashley's Pawn Mower Book, Volume 1.

We will have a USCF Open Chess Tournament over the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holday on Saturday, January 14, 2012. Please save the date!
