You're Invited

Some of you may remember last year when Frank Love Chess Club reserved the meeting room at the Bothell library and invited another chess club to join us for an afternoon of chess.  We decided to try it again this year.  We have invited Kenmore Chess Club to join us and it should be a lot of fun.  Please remember that this is not a drop off event.  All students must have an adult with them.  We would love to see more parents, grandparents and other family members play some games too.  It's Sunday December 2 from 2-4pm at the Bothell Library.  (The Seahawks play at 10 and should be over by 1! )  Hope to see you there!

The free trial month for Chess Club has ended.  The $40 yearly fee was due last week.  If you have not turned in your check (payable to Frank Love PTA and can be sent to the office) by our next meeting on November 29th, we will assume that your student has decided not to continue with chess club and your student will no longer be allowed to stay after school for meetings.  If you haven't already done so, please send your $40 check (made payable to Frank Love PTA) to school.

We will be ordering T-shirts this Friday.  Every student signed up for chess club will be getting one.  If you have not already selected a size  or wish to order additional shirts, please contact me. 

Our Beginners have learned the basics of chess and will be ready to play with other students.  Starting this week we plan to have an in-house tournament.  Attendance is critical for this to work properly.  If your student will be absent, please contact Mr. Adams or myself so we can change the pairings in advance.

Our volunteers have been wonderful!  Thank you to all of the parents who have helped at the meetings so far this year.  Last week we had so many games going, that we ran out of boards.  We have 10 new boards now and shouldn't have that problem again.  So keep coming!  If you haven't already signed up to help at one of the meetings please let me know.  There are many empty slots in January and February.
