Member Night - May 2012
The World Chess Hall of Fame hosted its members on May 15th for Member Night. Guests were invited to tour the WCHOF’s exhibitions, meet staff members, and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. To celebrate the U.S. and U.S. Women’s Chess Championships, members were able to view streaming commentary from the tournament and meet players. Among the players in attendance were the 2012 U.S. Women’s Champion IM Irina Krush and the future Webster University scholastic chess team member, GM Ray Robson.
The World Chess Hall of Fame staff was thrilled to welcome its members for its second Member Night since opening in September 2011. Members received a special gift and an upgraded discount for attending. World Chess Hall of Fame members provide essential support for the WCHOF’s education and outreach programs, which include Free Family Days and joint field trips with the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. Members receive benefits such as discounts on shopping in Q Boutique and invitations to exclusive events such as Member Nights.
