March 14 Chess Meetup: Pawns, Persistence, and Potential


As the state tournament looms, the Beginner's CDA Chess Club hosted its last preparatory meeting on March 14th, setting the stage for an evening filled with strategy, learning, and unexpected outcomes. Once again, Post Falls Burger King's welcoming space saw a gathering of minds ready to battle it out on the chessboard.

This week, we were thrilled to welcome a new member—Arlon, an enthusiastic beginner who plays 10-minute games on chess.com but has no tournament experience. His presence added fresh energy to the event and highlighted our club's growing appeal among chess aficionados of all levels and ages.

The night belonged to Desmond, who, undeterred by the competition, clinched victories in all three matches. His skillful play and strategic foresight were on full display, making him the player to watch as we move forward. However, Payton also made waves, securing a draw against Milo and challenging Desmond in a manner that kept everyone on their toes.

These results not only showcase the evolving dynamics within our club but also emphasize our need for greater participation. The more members we have engaged in these meetings, the richer the learning experience for everyone, especially our novice players who are just starting their chess adventures.

As we gear up for the state tournament in Boise, we carry lessons, friendships, and memorable moments from nights like these. To the members of the Beginner's CDA Chess Club, your dedication and passion are the lifeblood of our community. We may be strategizing over kings, queens, and pawns, but we're building something far greater together. In this space, everyone, from the seasoned player to the absolute beginner, can find belonging, challenge, and growth.

Here's to the next chapter in our chess journey. May our moves be brave, our strategies bold, and our community more robust with each game we play.
