Mayor's Chess Challenge


The best is saved for last at the Mayor’s Third Annual Chess Challenge being held on May 19, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Pembroke Lakes Golf Club Nineteen Restaurant, located at 10500 Taft Street. This is the last chess challenge being held throughout Broward County as part of a free and friendly series of chess meet-ups created to draw attention to the benefits of chess in both the academic environment and in our community. Chess players of all ages and skills are welcome to play chess with Mayor Frank C. Ortis, City Commissioners, Broward County officials, community leaders and other players at this monthly traveling challenge. Instructors are on hand to help those new to the game.

The chess challenges support Scholastic Chess, which has been steadily growing throughout the years.  Players at this Challenge will have their Mayor’s Chess Challenge Passport stamped so they can log their participation. Those with perfect attendance from all the challenges will receive a prize at the end of the season. For more information about the Mayor’s Chess Challenge in Pembroke Pines, please contact Tom Joyce at 954-392-2127 or email
