The next fundraising spot I played at was The Kids Market on beautiful Granville Island near my home, a 5 min walk and a truly lovely place to spend spring and summer with its beautiful gardens, and by the water and boats. I use to playe in and around the market which has toy stores and play activities. Now I like to walk and run along the water.
The Kids Market manager were very kind to invite me to play there. At the Kids Market there were many families with very young children so they were interested in the game of chess and stopped to watch and even have a chess lesson. I was still able to find some strong players, these were mainly the dad’s who instead of waiting around whilst the children played in the climbing area, said they were happy to sit for a game of chess.
It was a really good time answering questions about chess and once again I was pleased to see how much interest people had in chess.
Everyone was such good sports! Thanks to everyone who played me!
