Rubber Ducky, you're the one!

The rubber duck was inducted this morning into the Toy Hall of Fame. 2013's other winner is chess. Chess is one of the world's oldest games and has been traced back to an Indian war game. The version we play today is very similar to the one played in Renaissance England.

Ocee Chess Club (ages 5-13) meets Wednesdays 20 November, 4 and 18 December at 6 pm. Members learn strategies, game variations and compete in tournaments.
