Default Chess Funding & Sponsorship

Great Idea!!!

Don't overlook local small businesses. If you get 5 or 6 local

enterprises
to donate little items as prizes, it adds up to lots of incentive. For
example:

Joey Bloom won 1st prize: dinner for four at
Mario's Pizza and Pasta Palace;
Tom Greene came in 2nd and won a free
tank of gas from Smith's Sunoco Station;
Marina Wallensky had the high score for the
elementary school section and won a $25
gift certificate at Paulines Pet Store.

These kind of prizes from local sponsors help stimulate
the local economy and build a sense of partnership between small business
and chess.
