Another big turn out at the Lubbock Chess Club
The newly formed Lubbock just had its second meeting tonight. As I mentioned last week, chess has been growing at warp speed in Lubbock. Now chess enthusiasts can enjoy casual games on multiple nights each week at various locations.
A group of dedicated chess aficionados in Lubbock have decided to re-open the Lubbock Chess Club and the primary goal is to have chess enthusiasts get together and have fun playing chess.
I am happy to say that the new Lubbock Chess Club has found a new long term home and a wonderful partner. Lin's Buffet at 5608 Slide Road (near South Plains Mall) has agreed to host the club on Mondays from 5-9 p.m.
A room full of players were on hand tonight to enjoy a fun night of chess action.
Another challenging night of chess fun will be on Friday nights starting at 5:30 p.m. at J&B Coffee, 2701 26th St., just off Boston Avenue.
After school/after work chess club at Science Spectrum: Thursdays, 4:30-6 p.m.; Science Spectrum Atrium, 2579 S. Loop 289; www.sciencespectrum.org. The club is free and all ages and levels are welcome.
Springboard Chess Nights: Mondays and Wednesdays 5-7 p.m., 4204 Boston Ave. The event is free and all ages and levels are welcome.
There is no cost to play at either location. Members of SPICE/Texas Tech Knight Raiders will be on hand to give you a mental work out. You can get more information at www.texastechchess.blogspot.com or www.lubbockchessclub.wordpress.com.
