Ben’s Blog — By GM Ben Finegold
The CCSCATL is having its first Chess Camp on October 9. A camp on a Monday? That’s correct! There is no school for most kids in Metro Atlanta due to a teacher work day / Columbus Day. So, since most kids have the day off, why not come to the CCSCATL and learn and play chess! Not to mention, free pizza!
Drop off is at 8AM-9AM and the camp/tournament is for kids aged 6-13.
GM Ben Finegold and IM Carlos Perdomo will be the instructors for the camp in the morning. GM Ben Finegold will change hats and become Senior Tournament Director Ben Finegold for the afternoon competition.
Classes for the camp start at 9AM with snacks and lunch (pizza!) provided for all kids. The tournament will start 12:45PM and we will wrap up between 3:45PM and 4:00PM.
The fee is $85 per child if signed up by Oct 3 and $100 on site. Members of the club save $5 ($80 and $95) off the regular fees.
