There will be time to play chess, and boards will be set up ready for play. The purpose of this class is so tournament participants and parents can learn more about the special rules and procedures of tournament play. All tournament participants should attend this class at least once. However, participation is not required. Total time should be around one hour of instruction. Everyone, especially parents, are welcome.
