    Pawn Stars
    While it is known as the game of Kings, chess is as much about pawns as it is about the King. This week of fun is designed for all skill levels; from those who have never played to those who are seasoned tournament players. We will have lessons, play games, design strategies and compete in a Swiss-system tournament. We will learn and then play speed chess, pawn wars, bughouse and tournament chess during the week and every student will go home with their own tournament rated chess set to play with at home.
