West Fargo Chess Club members gathered for an informal awards ceremony after school on April 23, in the Commons at Cheney Middle School. The club had a lot to celebrate.


"We had a very good year," Kambiz Farahmand, Cheney Middle School's Chess coach, said. "We had 22 registered players in our club this year. On any given Thursday after school, there were 10 to 15 kids playing chess at Cheney and having fun. That's what it's all about," he added.
