New Members!

New faces joined our team this week.  Some were players from last year and four players were brand new to the club.  We split off three new players this week and covered names of pieces, how to set up the board and how the pieces move.  The other players paired up after a short lesson on sportsmanship from Mr. Adams. 

We have covered the following concepts to date: 
  • rules for castling
  • value of pieces to make sure that pieces are fairly traded
  • briefly touched on good opening strategies to control the center of the board
