Help Send Ben Rood to Slovenia

October 17, 2012

To the Supporters of Northern California Chess,

On November 2, 2012 California chess super-star Ben Rood will leave for Maribor, Slovenia in order to compete in the FIDE World Youth Chess Championships. Ben Rood asked his family to attend for support as he battles the best eight-year-olds from around the globe. A family trip to Slovenia is an expensive undertaking and I am asking California chess players to help him out. Please come and participate in the Send Ben Rood to Slovenia  scholastic chess tournament or give a small donation to the cause. The Torres Chess and Music Academy is donating all the awards for the tournament  and all money raised will go directly to Ben Rood’s family to offset costs associated with Ben participating in the 2012 World Youth Chess Championships.  Together we can make chess in Northern California better for everyone.

Sincerely,

Chris Torres

Calchess Scholastic Coordinator

President of the Torres Chess and Music Academy

Chess Coach for Ben Rood
