March in the 4th of July Parade!

The Chess Club is participating in the VP Parade that is going to be held in Forest Park this Friday, 4th of July.

We are excited to be a participant and will be having volunteers walking alongside the famous Chess Club Van.

We welcome all club members and any one else interested in participating.  All participants will receive a t-shirt and refreshments. We will also be handing out candy during the parade. We are looking for children and adults to participate. Fun! Fun!

If you are interested in participating, please call the Club, 314-361-2437, and notify us of all participant names, their t-shirt size and contact information.

Participant Directions  ***please note, the Chess Club will be closed for the July 4th holiday

The VP Parade will be in Forest Park, and officially starts at 10 a.m.  There is parking available at Hoyt and Forest Park Parkway on the NE corner of Wash U Campus, and there will be a shuttle that will take you to the parade entrance.  At the parade entrance, you will look for the Chess Club Van and meet there.  The last shuttle leaves the parking lot at 9:30am, so we would suggest being in the parking area around or before 9 a.m. to avoid the rush.  There is no limit to how early you can arrive.
