Searching for Bobby Fischer chess camp
Chess camp was held July 28-Aug. 1 at the Looking Glass Artist Collective.
This was the inaugural class for the newly renovated facility which just opened at 405 N. Lee St.
The camp included students ages 8-14. They were instructed in the rules of chess and practiced the first three days; the last two days were spent in tournament play.
Instructors for the camp were Greg Hall, a class A-level United States Chess Federation player and the chess club adviser at Corriher-Lipe Middle School, and John Reeves, the chess club adviser at China Grove Middle School. They were assisted by Clayton Price, a student at the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics.
