At Denton High School (DHS) Chess Club today, I talked about a possible upcoming tournament. One problem in deciding on date to participate in a tournament is that the high school students have so many other activities: UIL (University Interscholastic League) competitions, orchestra, choir, and tennis are especially popular with DHS chess club members. Do my blog readers think this is why participation in chess tournaments declines by high school? DHS also had ladder chess games, which were notated to analyze next Friday.
