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.
