For the past several years, local mayors, elected officials and community leaders throughout Broward come together in support of scholastic chess.
Mayors’ Chess Challenges are a free and friendly series of meet-ups, spearheaded by Sunrise Mayor Michael J. Ryan in cooperation with Mayors from throughout Broward County. Each Mayors’ Chess Challenge event provides an opportunity for players of all ages, novices and experts alike, to join in the fun with elected officials and community leaders.
Hollywood’s challenge is set for Saturday, March 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fred Lippman Shuffleboard Building (309 North 21st Avenue.)
Players will receive a Mayors’ Chess Challenge Passport so they can log their participation over the course of the school year. Those with perfect attendance will receive a prize at the end of the season.
Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome and participation is free. Free instruction will be provided by the Sunrise Center of Excellence in Chess. For more information, please contact the Sunrise Leisure Services Department: (954) 747-4600
