On Wednesday, December 27th, join us in celebrating the 78th anniversary of the United States Chess Federation. Founded in 1938, US Chess has empowered its members through the game of chess. It is with even more pleasure we share the current Executive Direction of US Chess is Carol Meyer, who leads to expand chess opportunities for adults and youths. Join us in thanking and celebrating US Chess for their incredible work.
QGCI is creating a year-in-review playbook and we want YOU to get involved! Let us know if you want to write a piece about chess and its impact, give us quotes, and so on. Thank you so much for your amazing support!
We are thankful for chess, our supporters, our communities, and most importantly, the students who play chess not just for wins but for their mind and heart.
Today, one of our students said, “I love chess. I don’t care how many points I earn, I just want to learn how to play with friends and help others.” #cityofchess
