Did you know Flat Rock Community Schools has a Chess Team? The Barnes and Simpson teams are just a couple of examples of several great afterschool programs that probably don’t get the attention they deserve.
These teams traveled to Michigan State this weekend to participate in the Michigan Chess Association’s 2010 Elementary/Primary Team Championships. And they came away with several medals!
It is an event I look forward to every year. Win or lose the kids have a great time competing and the parents have fun socializing throughout the day.
Here are a few snapshots from the event:

Lots of Tough Competition
Where is the most stress? Coach or player?
Congratulations to all the children that participated and represented Flat Rock very well. I also want to thank Chris Stogiera and Eric Noon for volunteering a lot of time to coach our Elementary and Middle School teams.
