Weekly Highlight - Chess Club

October 06, 2017
By Gregg Dillinham

Since 2011, Liberty Christian has had neither a chess program nor the accompanying presence in the Tri-Cities tournaments.  That wait is over… we are back. 

God has been very good to move the hearts of parents to once again start this critical and highly integral educational tool.  With 35 students ranging from K-12, we’ve formed the ‘Tournament’ (18 players) and ‘Recreational’ (17 players) groups, meeting on Fridays since September 15th, and will be continuing until the end of the middle of May 2018.  The whole will be one more avenue through which our collective Liberty kids can compete, and we as parents can join them and model outreach to this dying world. 

Speaking of which, on January 6th, 2018, we will again be hosting an annual, area-wide scholastic tournament (K-12).  We are very excited to add some necessary changes to the upcoming event to make it a considerably more rewarding and memorable experience for all attendees. As well, it will be an opportunity for the players to help support their team, their school, and be ambassadors for our Lord.  We will also be hosting the second annual ‘Tournament of Champions’ at the end of the year, after the State Championship (in Pasco), in May.
