Photo album: Northfield Chess Team

David Ludescher, assistant chess coach at Northfield High School, invited me to play chess against members of the Northfield Chess Team today. I barely know a rook from a bishop so I took photos instead.

Physics teacher and chess coach Rebecca Messer was orchestrating the event.  Other adults in the photos: Greg Sumner, occupational therapist for the middle school and high school and the assistive technology specialist for the district; Matthew Rich, fellow attorney with David at Grundhoefer and Ludescher.

See my album of 23 photos, the large slideshow (recommended), or this small slideshow:

I just discovered that Rebecca Messer had sent me photos of the 2009 Northfield Chess Team at the state championships that I never published. Some familiar faces:

    I would like to say a BIG thank you to Rebecca Messer and David Ludescher for mentoring these students all year. This is a fantastic club/team and I would encourage any student with an interest in chess to participate next year. Thank you also to the adults who voluntarily subjected themselves to the humility of playing chess with the eleven to eighteen year old set.

        David, feel free to invite me sometime. I’ve been itching to play chess as of late. I’m probably not as good as I once was … (don’t they all say that?)
