On October 15, 2010, 15 Denton HS students, chess club sponsor Fred Mueller, math teacher Joe Rozell, and I went on a field trip to The University of Texas at Dallas. We got to meet the chess team, tour the library and campus, eat a snack, have a chess lesson from our tour guide National Master Artur Safin, and play chess for fun. The photo is of the DHS students posing with one of UTD’s Grandmaster team members, Alejandro Ramirez Alvarez (seated), and Safin (far right).
