Cub Scout Chess







Fun times with the Wolf den today. My boys all earned their chess belt loop! Woo hoo! Of course it gave me a perfect chance to take pictures. I used the free TRA actions on these. I like the effect. What do you think?

Awesome. That is a cool glass chess set. Wednesday is chess club day for my kids. I like how they discuss their strategies on the way home.
Great pictures and PP.
