Mike Nicholson, a chess player from Hexham, a market town in rural Northumberland, contacted me a few days ago to tell me about the latest challenge he's facing:
Next week, he's got a 'captive' audience of 50 teenagers, and 2 hours to tell them about chess. The goal, keep them entertained, enthuse them about the game, and even get a few of them to start playing.
Has anyone ever handled a similar situation? Any tips, suggestions or advice for Mike?
