Chess tourney on tap for students
“There will be some fairly strong players in there,” said Barber, a retired teacher from the Buena Park School District.
The tournament – co-hosted by the Fullerton Host Lions Club, the Hanley Chess Academy in Huntington Beach and American Chess Equipment in Anaheim – is named for the late Bernard Morrison, a Stanton resident who taught and promoted the game at schools throughout Orange County.
