Chess in Schools in Central Park

A week ago, for Video Friday, I wanted to feature a clip for the recent Chess-in–the-Schools Central Park event, but I got sidetracked by the Fischer News Clips 2004-2005. This week, for Flickr Friday, I was happy to find the following photo.

For more about the event, see Hundreds Compete At Largest U.S. Chess Tournament In Central Park.

The tournament is a partnership between the Parks Department and Chess-in–the-Schools, which works to teach public school students the game of chess.

I'm not sure it qualifies as 'the largest chess tournament in the United States', but it's certainly impressive.
