SIX CORNERS CORNUCOPIA
by Jeff Caveny

Renaissance Knights joined other community groups Saturday, September 19, 2009 to participate in the Cornucopia event at the Six Corners area in the Portage Park neighborhood on the North Side of Chicago. The Bank of America branch at 4901 W. Irving Park Rd. kindly hosted us, making room for us to set up an information display, a jumbo size chess set, and a number of chess boards.  Some of the best chess players and teachers on Renaissance Knights' staff were present. We invited any and all community members who came by to challenge our teachers to a game, and we offered chess piece keychains to anyone who could beat FIDE Master Zin.

 

The Cornucopia event was a successful and enjoyable experience for all. Area businesses displayed green balloons and people visited them in a "treasure hunt", getting cards stamped at each location. A special highlight of the day was the appearance of Elvis on stilts, who sang and even stopped by our boards to play a little chess. Renaissance Knights thanks the Cornucopia organizers and Bank of America for their generous hospitality in hosting the event and giving us a warm welcome to the community.
