National Chess Day – Second Saturday in October

NATIONAL CHESS DAY

National Chess Day is celebrated on the second Saturday in October.  There is evidence that October 9th was proclaimed By President Ford to be National Chess Day.

We are continuing our investigation as to why the date has fluctuated over the years.  Here is a page that shows the documentation to the presidential proclamation – http://www.uschess.org/content/view/10519/596

CELEBRATE

Enjoy a game of chess and post on social media using #NationalChessDay to encourage others to do so as well.
