Allentown's First Ever Youth Chess Tournament

Blog Write Up
I have seen the kids (and their parents) play Chess during Summer basketball tournaments in downtown Allentown. If you're interested in helping or know someone who'd like to play, contact Peter Bond.

Bernie, there is chess for youth available in allentown on a regular basis via the LVCA. Available for youth as well as open divisions. See http://www.lehighvalleychessclub.org/LVCA_Home.html

Not sure why this event would get "first ever" status.

And for those interested, the LV Scholastic Championships are this Saturday at Nor Community College, both age based and USCF rated divisions

I gave it that billing bc it is the first ever that is actually in Allentown. I am aware of the chess tournament at NCC, which is great and a big tradition. I'd love to see some of these kids play there. But it's a lot of dough for many of them.
