Not so for a group of global-minded volunteers, who were busy wrapping and packing presents at Grace Fellowship Church in Timonium.

It's a sun-splashed morning in rolling southern Anne Arundel County, and a cluster of old oaks and maples make a fine canopy for the 25 gentlemen gathered at the cottage they see as a shrine. Some wear seersucker blazers and boating shoes. Many sport neckties with their club's logo - a British flag and an American flag, their staffs crossed. Their laughter echoes off the clubhouse, a bungalow built 34 years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. "We have an ancient tradition - it never rains on meeting day at the Old South River Club," says Chris Wilson, a longtime member of the tiny Harwood society that calls itself "the oldest continuously operating social club in the English-speaking world.

The envy might fade, though, upon learning that most of Perelshteyn's time on his travels is spent within arm's length of a chessboard. Perelshteyn, a 21-year-old junior at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, is this year's recipient of the Samford Fellowship, awarded annually by the American Chess Foundation to the top young chess player in the country.

Just one year in age separated 17-year-old Travis Wood from the oldest of the Kenyan boys he was standing before, but at 6 feet 2, 190 pounds, he appeared like a giant to them. So too did 5-10, 175-pound 16-year-old Keifer Rawlings. The two linebackers from the St. Paul's football team were in Kenya in early January as part of a Fellowship of Christian Athletes mission trip. Sharing their faith and the sport of football, Wood and Rawlings coached the Kenyan boys for five days, helping them progress from knowing hardly anything about the sport - many of them play soccer - to participating in a scrimmage wearing helmets and shoulder pads.
