Chess in the Library

The second session of CITL in Ottawa was today and although there were some rough parts, it was still successful. This time, there were 30 kids in all and I only had one helper with me. Sometimes, the children became too turbulent but we always managed to calm them down. All in all, another great session of CITL.

Again, I would like to thank David Li for taking a bye in a tournement to come help me. Looking forward to next week's session.

Ottawa Chess in the Library Grand Opening

Today, I taught the first class in Chess in the Library (Ottawa branch). It was a huge success, pulling in 28 people with 12 others on the waiting list. The class went very smoothly and the kids had fun playing against each other. It was great watching them enjoy chess and all the hard work more than worth it (:

I would like to thank David Li and Liban Farah for being excellent helpers and making the class go very smoothly. I couldn't have asked for better helpers.

I look forward to next Saturday when I will be teaching again!
