Paul Hubbard is the owner of Deep Run Roadhouse. He’s a chess enthusiast and believes that chess should be in every school. When we shared our mission with Paul he didn’t hesitate 1 second to begin to offer ways he could help our kids and their families! Mr. Hubbard has 2 locations; 1 on Gayton Road and the other on North Laurel Street. He’s got a menu that doesn’t leave anyone out and it’s literally an award winning barbecue joint! The 1st thing Mr Hubbard did was become a commercial finance customer. When you are tops in your field expansion is always a top priority. 2nd thing Mr Hubbard did is offer our chess community employment. Up to 15 people each weekend to help with his catering operations! Any RCI verified chess player has the opportunity to earn as much as $100.00 a day on Fridays, Saturdays, and/or Sundays. For a child and parent, that’s a real nice way to spend time together, especially when school is starting and the holidays won’t be far behind! If you play chess and need work, call Mr Callaham first! All chess applicants must be verified as active in the community and/or somehow involved in the mission! It’s not over yet. Mr Hubbard has extended his community day to the Richmond Chess Initiative. All day Thursday the 24th is Chess Day. RCI will receive a portion of the proceeds of the day. Please stop by either location, enjoy some of the best barbecue in the country (yes it’s that good) and place your receipt in the chess box. Ordering out for your next party, luncheon or get together, call Deep Run Roadhouse and tell them you want the, “chess rate” for a deep discount! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Deep Run Roadhouse at their stores, website, or on facebook and tell Mr Hubbard how much you appreciate him making opportunity for children, families, and adults of all ages that play chess in the Richmond area!!
On Saturday July 29th children from the Boys and Girls club of Greater Richmond. The 4 contestants were Christopher Collins, Anton Wilson, Iyana Scroggins, and London Rise. The play format was a Quad. This is an everyone plays everyone setting.
Here, 12 year old Head Coach for Boushall Middle School, Giovonnie Pearson watches the board as an assistant referee. G-Man as he is called is ensuring that the game is recorded and that if a piece is touched and the player wants to make a claim, there will be no disputes.
After 2 rounds of grueling battle Alton has 1.5, Christopher has 1.5, Iyana has 1, and London has 0. What’s always good recovery food after a couple games of tournament chess? That’s right ……… Pizza
When the battle is done, Alton and Christopher are tied for 1st, Iyana get’s second and London takes 3rd!
Get your kids involved with RCI! We have it all. World class instruction, free weekly workshops at our own office, work and community service opportunities for the kids, and tournaments to test and document their skill. Hope to see you at our, “Fearless Tournament Openings” camp, August 14th – 18th right here at Create Space. Your tournament player will definitely thank you.
RCI’s apprentice training is underway! These young people are learning about professional behavior and entrepreneurial development on Saturdays. It was beautiful to watch as these 11, 12, and 14 year old middleschoolers wrote out their goals list. 75% of everything they wanted to spend their earnings on was for other people to be happy. We are proud to give them the chance to increase their earnings now and prepare for college knowing that they already have a good paying opportunity. Persons completing the RCI Apprentice Program are automatically promoted to an Area manager when they begin college. The increase in compensation allows them to simply do the same thing they were doing before they left. Our goal is a seamless financial transition to university life that is intrinsically linked to community service and “no age requirement” prosperity!
Summer is coming… we hire chess players, stay at home parents, bilinguals, veterans, and foster children with no sales or marketing experience. Teachers are welcome to apply for summer work as well. Call Mike C at 804=426-6058.
