The annual Chess Challenge with Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy is taking place on Saturday, March 9th from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Fred Lippman Shuffleboard Courts Building, 309 N 21st Avenue in downtown Hollywood. This free, friendly chess series, spearheaded by Sunrise Mayor Michael J. Ryan, is held in cooperation with Mayors from throughout Broward County and draws attention to the benefits of chess in both the academic environment and in our community. Since September 2018, the series has been held in 14 Broward County municipalities, now’s its coming to Hollywood. Players received a Mayors' Chess Challenge Passport at the first challenge, so they can log their participation over the course of the school year. Those with perfect attendance will receive a prize at the end of the season, on May 18th in the City of Pembroke Pines. Each Mayors' Chess Challenge event provides an opportunity for players of all ages, novices and experts alike, to join in the fun with elected officials and community leaders. Instructors from the Sunrise Center for Excellence in Chess will be on hand to provide free help to those new to the game. All are encouraged to attend to root on the participants.
