Chess in town

Chess is going really well at the Stan Laurel pub where people are dropping in for a game from Grange. James, age eleven, comes along with his mom and brother and is beginning to beat us all , Last Tuesday there must have been six games going along with some who where watching. There's a lovely friendly atmosphere as we've deliberately kept the interactions low key. We have no power struggles that you can get in some clubs ass Peter Hanks avoids the existence of a formal club with chairmen, secretaries. In fact when they do have a match, Peter will bake a cake.

If you're curious,  why not say hello in the Market Square where we play every Saturday from about 10 till as late as 2 every time the weather permits or of course drop in at the pub on a Monday or Tuesday after 7 pm.
