The Connected Pawns Chess Ministry of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church will be hosting a chess festival August 30–31, 2013. The festivities begin Friday
August 30 at Enon West 230 W Coulter St, where the Connected Pawns will have a rated and unrated chess tournament. Both events will have three sections of
K-3, K-8, and K-12 competitors. The fun continues at Enon East 2800 W Cheltenham Ave. Saturday morning with a screening of the “Brooklyn Castle”

Following the movie NM Justus Williams will have a Q&A session and play a simultaneous exhibition. A simultaneous exhibition or simul is when one
person plays a number of people in individual games at one time. The top three players from each section of the tournament will play NM Justus Williams in
the simul!

Justus Williams is one of the featured students in the “Brooklyn Castle” documentary about the I.S. 318 Brooklyn Middle School chess team, which won the
2012 National High School (K-12) Championship. Justus has received numerous accolades and has represented the USA in tournaments in Brazil, Greece, and
Montreal all by the age of 14. In 2010 he became one of the youngest chess players ever to earn the title of National Master and currently ranks in the top
99 percentile in the United States.

The Connected Pawns are part of the Enon Youth Athletics Association. Since it’s inception, the Enon Youth Athletics Association has provided a
Christ-centered ministry focusing on using athletics to reinforce Christ-like principles. The mission of the EYAA is to create an atmosphere for Christian
growth and development through relevant athletic ministry activities for youth.
