Philip Lindy Saturday Chess Tournament Series
- Over 170 students convened on the Lenfest Center on Saturday, October 26th for ASAP’s first 2013-2014 chess tournament and start of the “Philip Lindy Saturday Chess Tournament Series." This year Saturday tournaments have been supported by a memorial fund from the family and friends of Philip Lindy, who sadly passed away this June.
- Lindy was a longtime supporter of chess and ASAP, funding the organization’s annual trips to State Chess Championships and other chess initiatives. He would frequently attend chess tournaments, always playing a match or two with an available student. His enthusiasm was infectious, and he will be missed. Thanks to Phil Lindy and those who cared for him, these students are guaranteed to have the opportunities to use chess to achieve excellence.
