Chess Club Meetings Begin!

By: Alex Kimbrell

At Maddox Middle School, we have a chess club that meets on Tuesdays. This past Tuesday eight members came to enjoy a relaxing game of chess. This year the chess team is going to travel. If you would like to travel with the chess team you need to attend some meetings. Our coach is John McGraw. He is very nice and a king at chess!

Chess originated from India and in the 6th cantury AD.The earliest precursor of modern chess is a game called chaturanga, which flourished in India by the 6th century, and is the earliest known game to have two essential features found in all later chess variations. Did you know that different pieces in the game have different powers? That is pretty awesome! The game of chess has a lot to do with math. In fact, it helps  you in all of your academic studies.

So make a date and join the Chess Club next Tuesday!
