Chess clocks for budding chess club

The cost of 5 analog chess clocks is $283, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am an English teacher, and I'm running a new chess club at Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, New York City. I need someone to help me purchase five time clocks for my chess club. We are hoping to engage in outside competition and we will need these clocks to compete. These clocks will help us to attract some more members and also allow us to engage in speed chess games. These fast games are very popular with some players. These clocks will also help open the door to competition with other schools. The Abraham Lincoln High School Chess Club is in its infancy, and needs a strong booster shot of quality materials. The clocks will add to the caliber of players and also help the students in understanding the idea of time constraints when engaged in competition. This of course will carry over into their preparation for time constrained tests like the New York State Regents exams. Thank you for your time and consideration.
