Chess is a sport. I am trying to convince my school's athletic director that chess should be treated as a sport and funded by the school district...Anyway, I recently have discovered the beauty of shogi and will be teaching several students who are good chessplayers...I predict they will favor shogi because of the ability to "drop" pieces. I am partly responsible for allowing (and even encouraging) them to play BUGHOUSE. Is there any other school district in New York that instructs students in shogi. I would welcome contacts in order to arrange a match in chess and shogi.
