"Would you like to play against International Master Arthur Guo in a Simultaneous Exhibition?
Chess Zone will be holding a simul with IM Guo on Sunday, March 13th, and we'd like you to come play against him. We expect to have more interest in this event than we have seats available, so we will be drawing lots to determine who will receive invitations.
All participants 12 years of age and older must supply proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If under 12, vaccination is not a requirement. Masks will be optional."

Free Chess Sets Program for Low-Income Schools™
**Free Chess Sets Program for Low-Income Schools™ allows eligible Title I schools in the nation to request chess sets to start new school-based chess programs or to supplement the equipment needs for their existing chess programs. Eligible Programs include after school chess programs and those teaching chess as part of their school day. Accepted schools will receive five complete chess sets which include:
5 sets of pieces
5 vinyl chess boards
The free chess sets are available on a first come first serve basis until the funds run out.
In June 2020, we launched a GoFundMe fundraising campaign to benefit frontline healthcare heroes and to support low-income school chess.
We have delivered 800 Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches to frontline healthcare heroes working at five metro Atlanta hospitals, including Northside Duluth Hospital, Emory Johns Creek, Piedmont Atlanta, Grady Memorial, and Gwinnett Medical Center.
We also raised enough funds for 300 complete chess sets to support chess programs in sixty low-income schools, primarily in black and brown communities.
