marlob@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - When Nellie Jordan started the chess club at Williamsport Elementary School in the 2003-04 school year, she had high hopes it would be a success. Actually, the endeavor proved to be almost too successful. "We had 35 children sign up," Jordan said. "There were so many I ran out of seats in my room so we had to do it on two nights instead of one. " Part of that overwhelming interest may be because in the popular Harry Potter books, the characters play living chess, Jordan said.

BOONSBORO -- It was hard to believe that this was a school gymnasium. There were no athletes or cheerleaders. But there were plenty of kings, queens, bishops and knights. There was no noise, no shouting. But a lot of furrowed brows and quiet strategy. It was a day to play chess. Boonsboro Middle School was the setting Saturday for the Maryland Chess Association W. Paul Engle Jr. Open. Organizer Mike DiLeo said this is the first major chess tournament that has been held in Washington County.

KNOXVILLE - It's a competitive game of strategy, but team adviser Mike DiLeo stresses good sportsmanship, as with most sporting events. The strategy involved in this game, however, requires clever movement of game pieces - on a chess board. That sentiment is echoed on the T-shirts chess club team members wear. "Play to learn" is on the front, with "Play to win . . . accept a draw . . . show good sportsmanship!" on the back. "That's important," DiLeo said. DiLeo lives in Knoxville in southern Washington County and his three children attend Pleasant Valley Elementary School.
