The Mayor’s Chess Challenge heads back to Coral Springs this month.

This free and friendly series of meet-ups, spearheaded by Sunrise Mayor Michael Ryan in cooperation with Mayors from throughout Broward County, the event draws attention to the benefits of chess in both the academic environment and in our community. Coral Springs Mayor Skip Campbell, a law partner of Ryan’s at Krupnick Campbell, will head it up once again as every few weeks the event rotates to various cities.

This month, the challenge will be held on Saturday, January 28 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Coral Glades High School. 

Families and students of all ages are invited to join the Mayor along with elected officials and community leaders, for a game of chess. This is a free, open play event, so registration is not necessary. 

Coral Glades High School is located at 2700 Sporstplex Drive.

    Hi Mayor… Is anyone going to do anything about the monopoly/STRONG HOLD that is going on with Advanced Cable? Are you going to keep allowing this company to strong hold the area with high speed cable access? No other cable companies can come in to CS because of them, WE WANT CHOICE!

      The exclusive deal with Advaced Cable ended in 2007. Any provider could have come in starting at that point. If that wasn’t the case, ATT couldn’t offer Uverse (as it does), and Comcast wouldn’t be in the city providing commercial service (which they do). Comcast plans to expand to residential service soon. For far too long people (including Comcast) have been throwing the city under the bus, when really it was Comcast’s decision not to want to invest the money to install or rent the necessary infrastructure. If you’d like to discuss further, you’re welcome to email me at
