Fridays are trying to say the very least!

It was a busy day yesterday! I have been working on the marketting for my business and well it has been taking up a lot of my time. Speaking of which, This is a reminder that we will be hosting a simul chess tourney here at Rockhoppers next weekend. Are you a Chess player? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play a "master" Chess player? Have you ever thought, you know I bet I could beat a master if I ever were to get an opportunity? Well here is that chance. You are invited to come participate or be a spectator in Rockhoppers first ever "Chess Simul". A Chess ‘Simul’ is a tradition dating back thousands of years in which one player plays against several players simultaneously.Come see a Chess Master take on all comers – At the same Time! Bill McGeary has maintained a USCF master rating for over 20 years. He has been playing in tournaments since 1972, was the Washington State Co-Champ in 1982 and the Alaska State Champ in 1995. The event will kick off at 1pm with a short program and play will begin at about 1:45. Players of all strength are welcome to try their hand. Included again is a picture of Bill McGeary (and yes he was included before in my blog) this is a big deal for Rockhoppers and since it is Easter weekend we wont be having any live music that Saturday so we are truly hoping a lot of people will come and participate or watch. Now back to yesterday.. I have been getting some wonderful marketting opportunities this week and some great opportunities for some events. Rockhoppers will be working with the parks and rec department this summer. We will have two groups meeting here (hopefully) beginning in May. I hope you can join us. Here is the info.
