The Bison Chess Club

Oklahoma Centennial High School Bison Chess Club

My talented brother Rick has done it again. I asked him to provide the art work for the chess club I and another teacher are organizing at our school. The above is his result. The kids are delighted with it. (As you can figure our, our school mascot is the Bison.)

Our Chef Carrie discovered a web site where teachers can make requests to have projects funded. She helped me post a funding request for books and tools related to chess for students. If you would like to help on this (beg, beg, beg) you can go to
Chess For Success and help out.

Looks good. Thanks for the plug.

Kinda looks like my post of your illustration on my blog. Only I was more wordy.
