I recently met with Alan, one of the organizers of a new chess club in Baltimore, which is seeking to establish a scholastic chess program and regular tournaments in the Baltimore MD area. They need help getting off the ground and have set up a gofundme page. I don’t expect you to donate (for full transparency I only gave $10), but if you might spread the word via facebook/twitter perhaps your help in getting the word out will be pivotal in getting the funding that they need to succeed. Details for their inaugural event can be found here.
I know it’s a bit awkward of me to ask but the gentleman I met with seemed dedicated to bringing chess to the youth of Baltimore and to have a genuine desire to build a quality organization in his community. Thanks for taking a moment to share the above link on social media.
