Proposal: Creating a Vibrant Chess Community

Creating a vibrant scholastic chess community.

I propose a MAKE session. I will lead a small group to collaborate on ways to make Boise
a vibrant scholastic chess community. Our objective would be to produce a draft document that
outlines action items that would make Boise the most chess friendly scholastic community in the northwest.

The theme of THATCamp Boise is “Access, Empowerment, and Expression.” The game of chess is empowering and encourages expression – yet there are barriers to access. Having an active chess scholastic chess community produces some amazing results. By outlining a theory of change, identifying barriers, and brainstorming solutions, Boise can become a model scholastic chess community.
