This free and friendly series of meet-ups, spearheaded by Sunrise Mayor Michael Ryan in cooperation with mayors throughout Broward County, draws attention to the benefits of chess in both the academic environment and in our community.

The Mayors’ Chess Challenge is an excellent vehicle bringing elected officials, community leaders, students, and families together.  Instructors will be on hand to help those new to the game and provide pointers to those familiar with it. 

Since September, the Mayors’ Chess Challenge has visited Fort Lauderdale, Davie, Sunrise, Deerfield Beach, Lauderhill, Weston, Coconut Creek, Dania Beach, Tamarac, Coral Springs, and Boca Raton.
