It's time to begin mulling how Ad Hoc can work with the much-larger incoming Bethany College's fall class. Thanks to The Good Life Scholarships, more than 70 Saline and McPherson county students are expected to start at Bethany -- in addition to incoming freshmen from Kansas, the US and around the world. Bethany College Athletic Dean Dane Pavlovich and 2017 orientation organizer Ashtyn Snider of the college Student Life Office will be with Ad Hoc on Monday, July 10, to brief us on college plans.
For weekend enjoyment:
A 19-minute documentary about Grandmaster Timur Gareyev's Guinness Book World Record in blindfold chess, Las Vegas 2016. GM Gareyev teaches at Lindsborg's Anatoly Karpov International School of Chess.
