Category Archives: CoffeeHouse Chess Blog(AUS)
A cool blog from Australia.
As this blog is essentially a personal thing, I tend to focus mainly on local chess which I am familiar with and which means much to me. So here’s a brief round up of what’s happening around Melbourne at the moment.
Sorry to plug my own club first, but hey that’s life! Melbourne’s newest chess club, Glen Eira Chess Club has been closed for a couple of weeks but will reopen on this Friday, 19th July with a social night and some blitz. Soon after that we want to start with some long play round robin events and our aim is to build our membership.
To help with this we have a brand new venue, the excellent Carnegie Library. Like before, we will run a junior club from 6 pm – 7 pm and then an adult club after that. We welcome all comers to our friendly little club! (Coffee rating of the neighbourhood is 4/5 with some really good cafes in Koornang Road)
