Polgar: Campers having a blast at Texas Tech's chess summer camp

The first Texas Tech Chess Summer Camp of 2010 just concluded. It was held at the College of Education building.

In addition to the local youngsters, we had a number of campers from out of town. Some came from as far as Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Midland, New Mexico, Florida, and even Argentina to take advantage of our fabulous chess camp.

Besides learning and improving chess, the campers had a blast with a number of other fun activities such as swimming, rock climbing, and LEGO chess building, etc. In addition, they also had a chance to learn to improve their writing skills with Rich Rice, and chess and computers with Jerry Perez. They even learned to make chocolate chess pieces from Connie of Paris' Creative Chocolate Cottage at 34th Street and Quaker Avenue.
