    Chess Master Takes On Ten In Fund-Raising Event



    "Chess Master Takes On Ten In Fund-Raising Event

    ST. JOHNSBURY -- To walk into the Unitarian Universalist Church in St. Johnsbury around 2 p.m. on Saturday, one would have seen chess master Doug Grant circling 10 different chess boards, each with a black king turned on its side.

    But keep one thing in mind: Doug Grant always plays white.

    Grant, a Littleton, N.H., resident, is certainly what one might call a prodigy, though he acknowledged that his skills did not come without a lot of practice. And at 63 years old he said it cannot be denied that age has made him a little slower.

    Still, that doesn't stop him from simultaneously playing 10 different opponents as a fund-raising effort for his church on Cherry Street in St. Johnsbury."
