The EVCS After-School Chess Club welcomed a distinguished visitor on the first day of the Spring session, Monday, February 25th. One of the best chess players in the world, Grandmaster Timur Gareyev was in town visiting and provided lessons on chess for club members. One day we will have to have him come back and play blindfolded chess with everyone (at the same time), he is maybe the best ever at this and holds the world record. Everyone enjoyed his visit and maybe we can't beat him at chess yet but the club bested him in ping pong.
