Fundraising to WYCC Maribor Slovenia 2012
Khatsilano Music and Art Festival is an event that happens only three blocks from my home and is a whole lot of fun for everyone.. They shut down the whole of 4th ave and traffic is not allowed through for the whole day. The stores entertain by setting something up outside the stores onto the streets. You can eat outside, play a festival game in some cases and even shop. The most fun was watching a band or entertainment.
Shortly after arriving and walking around I set up my chess fundraising. A store named the Brow Bar, helped me set up. I asked if we can use some folded cardboard boxes, and these worked great to make up a table. It was perfect. We were also on a more shaded side of the street and it was a very hot day.
I sat down and invited people to play chess. So many people wanted to play chess and ask questions about chess and about my trip to the WYCC. It was the best time!
