Tulip Festival Chess in Washington Park

By | May 9, 2012

Saturday and Sunday, May 12 & 13, for our third time, ENYCA will host a chess tent as part of both days of the Tulip Fest in Albany’s Washington Park.  This coming weekend enjoy playing some fun games of chess from 11 am to 6pm on either Sat or Sun.  Located up the hill from the food vendors next to the family area.  Special events:  Sat 1-4pm current 3-time NY State High School Champion Deepak Aaron will play 20 opponents at once.  Deepak represented the US at the World Junior Chess Championship in India last year.  So come over, have a seat, and bring your A game.  It’s FREE!! Sun 1-4pm learn some fun variations of the game of chess.  Like Kriegspiel, where you play without knowing what your opponent is doing.  Great fun for the audience too!  We provide the boards and chess sets.  Instruction given for beginners and newcomers to chess!  Don’t bring your excuses, just rest your feet and exercise your brain!! See you there!
