The Cris Collinsworth ProScan Foundation has done a fantastic job getting kids excited about chess. They also helped build a bond between young players and the chess professionals. Kids were lining up getting their T-Shirts, score pads, boards and books, etc., signed. Many of these kids have come back for the 6th year as the Queen City Classic is their favorite event. This year, around 700 kids will compete for the big showdown later on today.
