Today, LINC Chess had an all-boys' and all-girls' chess tournament at Bingham Middle School in Independence. Woodjie and Rose both got to play in the K-3 sections, but in separate rooms. The folks at LINC are always so friendly and helpful and made sure that Woodjie was included and as comfortable as possible in all the activities. Woodjie is autistic and sometimes he gets a bit anxious in large crowds or when unexpected things happen.
If you're in the Kansas City area and are looking for a free tournament for your child, you should check out LINC's facebook page. They run several tournaments every year and they are always well-attended and come with a free cafeteria lunch.
We had a great time! The next tournament is April 9 at North Kansas City High School.
