Bill Heinemann
Chess Club Advisor

Chess Club usually meets twice a week during the school year. Once a week students are instructed by Bill Heinemann and the other practice session is supervised by a parent volunteer. They learn strategy and tactics and practice checkmates and queening pawns. A newsletter is sent out most weeks with news, tournament schedules, ratings, lessons and puzzles. 

The Moreland Chess Club started in 1992 and went to its first state tournament in 1996. Since then, the Moreland team has placed in many tournaments and even traveled to Peoria for a National Championship in 1998. Many of Moreland's chess club players have continued to play on various High School Teams and to compete in tournaments. 

See the Minnesota School Chess Association for chess resources and information about state tournaments.
