Mine are bigger than yours

The Burlington (Iowa) Public Library is planning to install a giant outdoor chess set. While you still have to wait a bit before you can play on it, you can attend a lecture to learn about how the pieces are being made.
John Foss, a retired OB/GYN and accomplished woodcarver, is making the pieces for the board. He will discuss his designs for the outdoor game board at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Grimes/Salter Room Public Library, Fourth and Columbia.
