Today I made it to the remaining two high schools in Springfield, Kickapoo and Hillcrest in hopes that our poster will be displayed for those students interested in chess. I also managed to drop by Junior High, Hickory Hills and was advised they would even make mention of the club on their announcements. While at Kickapoo, a parent overheard me mention the Chess Club and she was interested for a place for her child to play, but did not think the club would accept such young players. I assured her we do and in fact we want young players as that is how I started out and developed my love of the game. I also stopped by Just For Him and added there website link to our Links. They sell chess sets and boards and I would hope if someone sees our poster there, they would perhaps purchase a set and come over to play. If nothing else, drop by there just to take in the fine cigar aroma! Finally, I spoke with the fine people at J-Wo Designs on West Kearney about T-shirt costs and I will present that to the club this Friday. I added a link to their website to our Links page as well.
