Event description

Description

Leading Youth to Empowerment INC recognizes all sports especially sports of the mind. Our interest in chess was brought to our attention by a fellow sponsor of our program. Mr. Fenley Montas common conversation was always about chess and how it develops the mind. "Chess enhances your imagination capability. If you keep on playing chess you will be surprised to observe a habit of visualization in your daily activities." Growing up in Elmont, LI you can find kids almost every day playing basketball, handball, card games, and of course chess.

Recently, Mr. Montas brought to our attention, in his visit to different parks in queens he witnessed fewer and fewer utilizing parks like Elmont park to its full potential. This past summer Fenley noticed a 13 years old boy, sitting at the chess tables. To his surprise the young man challenged him to a game, and won. From this experience Mr. Montas thought it would be a great idea to see how much others would enjoy the game of chess mixed with people of all ages. Furthermore, it would be a very interesting way to bring life back to the park, as well as new faces. So we’re now reaching out to young girls, boys, uncles, sisters, aunts, cousins, etc… to come join us starting on 04/14/18. Lets bring some life back into the park, and at the same time meet someone new that can challenge you in this great game.

Registration proceeds will be award to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner in the fashion of a scholarship or grant depending upon the age.
