Dr. Çakır's Chess & Philosophy, and ... Jazz Club and the Chess Team

This club/team is not a pay-to-participate club/team. This means it does not show up on your transcript. I am here to provide you with a place to come to in order for you to play chess, have philosophical discussions, and listen to music during lunch and many days after school during the chess season and depending on my availability the rest of the year. In other words, I am here for you to exercise your mind and gain skills. If you wish to have a club/team on your transcript, you should enroll in one of the pay-to-participate clubs/teams as well. However, if you should wish to have a letter from me confirming your participation in this club, I will be happy to write you one. If you are on the chess team and participate in USCF rated chess events, you will also receive an official chess rating.

Location: Annex 310


B-days: All three lunches

A-days: All three lunches
