Along with some good friends, I helped re-establish this defunct club and secure funding for club meetings and events.
My primary responsibilities included all publicity operations and planning the charity fundraisers.
We held weekly meetings and grew from two tables to as many as twelve simultaneous games happening. Snacks were provided and occasionally we were able to provide pizza.
We threw several tournaments to benefit the American Cancer Society, and our event was even attended by a grand-master!
We brought together members of the chess community spanning seven decades in age and nearly two-hundred miles in distance. In order to plan this event, I was involved in coordinating catering and two different funding sources available through Student-Life organizations (funded by student fees).
A big aspect of the club was giving a lot of our members a sense of community in a college town largely dominated by a fraternity scene. We threw parties together and played chess outside of meetings in casual settings just to pass the time on lovely spring days.
