Why Every Great City Needs A Chess Club

Shenandoah Valley Chess Club April 2014 Newsletter

Shenandoah Valley Chess Club is six months old! Thank You to everyone who supported us and helped spread the word! This has been a true community collaboration and we could not have succeeded without you.  

 

The Chess Club has officially partnered with Handley Regional Library (http://www.handleyregional.org/handley/default.asp) and is affiliated with the United States Chess Federation (http://www.uschess.org/).

 

In March we began one-on-one workshops and tutorials to teach chess terminology and tactical strategy. This will prepare for tournaments in June.

We have big hopes for the future of Chess in the area.
