When I retire ...

... from my career, I want to do what Arthur Meether does.
he has spent the past four years volunteering his time as a chess mentor at the public library.

Heck, on my days off this Summer, I might even take my 8-year-old and 6-year-old down to the library and play and study chess for a couple of hours a day. We might even interest a few other kids to play too.

There's nothing like sitting and playing chess (or reading a good book) in a good solid wood table and chair in the quiet of the library.

  1. Sitting around playing chess in such an environment is a sure thing to gather at least a bit of interest.

    So many people know how to play, at least casually (ie, they may lack knowledge of en passant, castling rules, and that you're allowed to have multiple queens.)

  2. What's your current rating?
