In order to qualify for a free two year membership, all you have to do is to complete the two correspondence chess courses offered by the Hadley School for the Blind. The chess courses are totally free, plus you will recieve a free adaptive chess set as part of your course materials. The first course covers the basics of the game, then the second course covers some strategies and tactics that can help you improve your game. Upon the completion of these two courses, you will recieve a two year US BCA Membership!
