Wednesday was “Bring Your Own Chess Set Day” for the Sherwood Elementary Chess Club, and participants took full advantage with everything from Nintendo to Harry Potter replacing the standard sets.
The Sherwood Chess Club, by the way, is a labor of love for Edmonds City Councilmember Lora Petso, who started the club 21 years ago.
“I can’t recall why we started,” Petso said. “Back in the old days, we’d take kids to compete at State and Nationals. We’ve had individual and team State Champions, and we had a team win Nationals once. These days, however, it’s mostly just for fun.”
