A Joyful Evening of Chess on International Chess Day

 


On July 20th, 2023, the CDA Chess Club held a delightful event in celebration of International Chess Day at Ramsey Park. As a proud member of the club, I can attest to the fact that it was an amazing evening filled with fun games, delicious treats, and great company. The turnout was impressive, and we even welcomed a new member who had heard about us online and decided to join in the fun.


We set up the picnic tables and chess boards at the park early in the evening and waited for our fellow members to arrive. Slowly but surely, the park was filled with chess enthusiasts of all ages. It was heartwarming to see so many members of our community come together to celebrate this global event.


As soon as everyone had arrived, the games began. There were players of all different levels, which made it even more exciting. Kids challenged adults, beginners battled seasoned players, and everyone was having a great time. It was wonderful to see how even the most competitive of games were played with a sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship.


One of the highlights of the evening was the delicious treats that members brought to share. There was everything from cupcakes and cookies to cheese platters and chicken bits. We all sat down at the picnic tables together and enjoyed the treats while watching the ongoing games. The food and the games went hand in hand, making for the perfect evening.


We also had the pleasure of welcoming a new member to our club that evening. He had stumbled upon our club’s page on the internet and decided to give it a try. It was heartwarming to see how he was quickly welcomed by everyone and was playing games in no time. It is great to see our club growing, and new members joining us to share our love for chess.


As the evening came to an end, we couldn’t help but feel grateful for the opportunity to come together and celebrate International Chess Day. We packed up the boards and headed home, already excited for the regular meeting scheduled for next week at Burger King in Post Falls.
