Southside Junior Chess Club
Chess Starting Position Bubba73 at en.wikipedia.

The Southside Junior Chess Club meets from 7.00pm to 9.00pm every Friday night during state school terms, in the Carindale Library Meeting Room, located in the Carindale Shopping Center at the corner of Creek and Old Cleveland Rds (see a map). We run chess competitions every Friday night, and also provide coaching by qualified and experienced coaches. All preschool and school age children are welcome, but it is recommended that they have at least a basic knowledge of the moves. The first night is free, and then it costs $5 per night for members, and $7 per night for non-members, with a 12 monthly membership fee of $25.


IMPORTANT ANOUNCEMENT - WE'RE EXPANDING!

Although the Meeting Room has been an excellent venue for over a decade, our recent growth has made it very difficult to fit all the children into the two rooms available. Therefore, starting with our first meeting next year on January 29, 2016, the club will expand into a second venue.

The current club will continue to operate as normal in the Carindale Library Meeting Room, run by Matt Gilpin. But there will also be a second Southside Junior Chess Club (SJCC) meeting in the Qld Contract Bridge Club at 67 Ipswich Road Woolloongabba, on Friday nights from 7pm to 9pm. This club will be run by Patrick Byrom.

The Woolloongabba branch has been fairly successful so far, so the SJCC will now continue at both venues until (at least) the end of the second state school term in 2016.

There is a map showing the location of the new venue here (the Brisbane Chess Club also meets at the same location). And here is a picture of the new venue.

Both clubs will be identical to the current club, with a mixture of playing and coaching. And there will be the usual two sections (rated and unrated) in each club. Children can attend either club, as the fees and prizes will also be identical in both clubs. As the Woolloongabba club is more central, it is expected that it will also attract junior chessplayers from the Western Suburbs.

If you have any questions, please call Patrick on 0417 873 723.
