Crane Country Day School will host a chess workshop and tournament next month for students of the game. The March 7 and 8 events are open to all area K-12 students, but the workshop is geared toward children in kindergarten through eighth grades.

The chess workshop, from 3 to 6 p.m. March 7, will feature renowned chess teacher Andrew Svehaug, a principal instructor and two-time national chess champion. The workshop costs $20.

The March 8 tournament costs $20 if registered in advance, or $25 at the door. Check-in for the tournament begins at 8:30 a.m., with the first round starting at 9 a.m. There will be a generous number of trophies and medals given to top teams and individual players. The format is 5-round G/30.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
