WAITE PARK -- In our technological world of wii, i-pods, and smart phones it's nice to go back to the standards once in a while.  Just over 100 kids in grades K - 6 will unplug their gadgets tomorrow (Saturday) and play some good old fashioned chess -- on a real board.

The Regional Chess Tournament will be held at Discovery school in Waite Park.  Resources Training and Solutions spokeswoman Sandra Cordie says it's a game that exercises their brains.

Kids from throughout Central Minnesota and the Northern Twin Cities suburbs have signed-up.

There will also be extra boards set-up for the kids to play pick-up games.

She says Resource Training and Solutions has been hosting the tournament for over 15 years now, and the event itself goes back long before that.
