Bye Bye, for now ;-(

bye-written-sand-7929543 Just a note to say that I (Scott) will be relocating to Melbourne shortly. So this Sunday will be my last at the Sunday chess club. I will be donating 2 chess sets and boards, that will be kept at the Pulse facilities. So that means anyone, anytime could play some chess (just ask at the desk). It will be up to YOU, if the usual chess get together (Sundays 9-11 am during school term) continues in its current form.

I have enjoyed the short time that we have had to play some chess together, and to build our little community. Happy in chess, Scott


Quite a crowd today

We had 10 visitors to chess today, so that is a new record for us. To prove it, see the attached pics. We had a good time, with 4 new people turning up, and I hope to see most of you there next week! 09082015442[1]09082015439[1]

So term 2 bites the dust!

The Community chess club will be taking 2 weeks break while the school holidays is on. We will reconvene on Sunday 12th July (yes, I know it is still in the school holidays – but only just).

We had 6 people at the club last Sunday – a record, and I am pleased the numbers are increasing – and not always the same faces each week.

Have a great holiday.holiday

A chance to refresh those batteries

We are in recess for the school holidays now. We hope to see some new faces on the 19th April at the Wilton Community markets, at Hannaford Oval. There will be normal chess sets mixed in with giant chess, draughts and lego sets. Sounds like fun to me, and I hope to you as well. Normal service will resume at the Pulse Cafe on the 26th from 9am.battery

Time for some giant chess?

No, not playing against GIANTS!a giant

But we will be playing with some giant chess pieces on the 19th April at the Wilton Market day. So this should be a bit of fun. We will have the usual sets also there, for all to use. It all helps to raise the club profile in the local community, and may turn into a regular event. I will remind you closer to the date, to NOT come to the Pulse Cafe for that Sunday.giant chess set
