What Chess can do−2009 Illinois Class Championship

On Saturday, Abe and I went to 2009 Illinois Class Championship. More than 60 players showed up. Nice turnout for a Fundraising Tournament.

The playing facility was great, here was the hallway, the Christmas light made the tournament like a holiday event.

In the afternoon, here came some little kids,  they ran and screamed in the hallway. Some people reminded them to lower their voices, but it only worked for a little while and then the screaming came back.

Some players came out and played a game in the hallway, the kids stopped screaming and came watching the game. See, what the chess can do! Even for little kids.
