District Scout Battle Chess 2014
to be held at Horley Campsite on 11th May 2014, 1-4pm.

Chess with a difference.....even total novices will be able to take part!
This will be an interactive game, with 1 Chess player and 8 'pieces'
(otherwise known as Scouts!!) per team. The game will be played on a huge
board, marked out on the grass (Harry Potter style game)
Troops can enter as many teams as they wish, £2 per person.
'Pieces' will be encouraged to wear fancy dress, dressing as the chess
piece they represent.....
Teams from 2 different troops will join together to form one set of
players. This will encourage interaction between 4 troops and 2 pairs of
Matches will be timed, and depending on number of teams, there may or may
not be a knock out game!
Form out soon.
Teams must be entered by Friday 25th April, 10pm
