  1. Hi, I’m looking for somewhere for my 11 year old son to play and maybe get lessons. Is this for kids as well and is it just competition or are there lessons also?


    1. Hi Tracy,
      My name is Stan.
      Thanks for reaching out. We generally just have competitions (tournaments) but we have discussed starting lessons as there seems to be interest in that facet of the game. At this point we have nothing set up but you and your son are more that welcome to stop by any week. If he is not a complete beginner he would fit right in. In the meantime here is the web address of another club that has a more scholastic style than we do. I hope this helps. Good luck and we’d love to see you and your son some Wednesday night in the near future.


      1. Thanks for your quick reply! I’ll try to bring him next Wednesday! How does it work? Is it handicapped? Sorry for my ignorance. I taught him the basics and what each piece on the chessboard does when he was 6 or 7 and that’s about all I know as far as chess. He beats me every night and he needs more competition!


      2. Sure. No not handicapped if by that you mean actual games. We have membership fees but we give people 3 or 4 visits before we even bring it up. We have all the equipment, boards, pieces and clocks. So all you have to do is bring yourselves. This week is an off week which means we have a break in our current tournament and would be a perfect time as there is less bustle and chaos of folks coming in to play their tournament games. If you want to place a face to the texts I have an associated Instagram page: Stan’s Chaturanga Chess World. There I put up pictures and 3 to 4 chess tactics diagrams a week. 😇
