1/15 LAREDO PUBLIC LIBRARY CHESS SET EXHIBIT
A collection of chess sets from around the world are on exhibit at the Laredo Public Library's main branch located
at the intersection of E Calton Rd and McPherson Ave. These colorful and artistic playing pieces are wonderful examples
of the wide variety of chess sets from different countries. Each tells a story about a different time, place,
people and history. The sets are from the collection of Laredo Chess Club member Dan Navarro. Be sure to drop by and
visit the display. The exhibit runs through the end of January. For library hours check out their website

10/23 OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
Our old website on Yahoo Geocities has gone the way of the dinosaur. Yahoo has discontinued its free website service
and the old website is no longer accessible. We will continue to re-build our website here on Tripod. Currently,
only the HOME and CALENDAR pages are operational. We will be adding more pages in the coming weeks.
