Chess master hosts exhibition, raises money for trip to Greece

Atulya Shetty, Michigan’s youngest chess master and a freshman at Huron High School, is hosting a “take all comers” simultaneous chess exhibition at Gretchen’s House Child Care Center #7 on Saturday, Sept 25.

The event will help to raise money for Shetty’s trip to Greece this fall, where he will participate in the World Youth Chess Championship in the Under 14 category. He will represent the U.S. as a delegate for the United States Chess Federation and is one of two Michigan youngsters who will participate. Three youths from the state as well as 57 around the country were invited.

Atulya Shetty will represent Ann Arbor at the World Youth Chess Championship this fall in Greece.

Gretchen’s House Child Care Center #7 is at 1580 Dhu Varren Road, Ann Arbor. The entry fee for the event is $15 with proceeds going to Shetty’s trip. Donations will be accepted, as well.

Times, details and a map to the event can be found on the Michigan Chess Association website.

Shetty, who attended both King Elementary School and Clague Middle School in Ann Arbor, also represented the United States at the WYCC in 2006 in the Republic of Georgia and in 2008 traveling to Vietnam.
