Following the successful social chess event held at The Boat Inn pub in Penkridge on Tuesday 17th July Brewood Chess Circle are delighted to announce that we have agreed another venue for another social chess event which this time will be held in Codsall on Tuesday 28th August from 7:30pm-10:30pm this time at The Crown Joule's pub in Codsall.
If you are reading this article having seen one of the many posters in Codsall than first of all please let me welcome you to the club and to this website. This article will be able to explain a bit more about the event. The event is absolutely free to attend and is designed to give people a taster session of chess. There are already four members of the club that live in Codsall, including one junior.
Children (boys and girls) and adults (men and women) would be welcome to attend. For any parents reading whose child might be interested in coming to the event there is no minimum age required to join a chess club although obviously it is down to a parents own common-sense. For any parents looking for guidance if the child is already six or seven years old, they would be fine.
There is also no minimum ability level required to join. Chess is a game that takes roughly about ten minutes to know all of the rules and therefore only ten minutes to start enjoying the game. Enjoyment of the game alone is enough. Talking of enjoyment there will also be a fun element to the evening as well.
I will be bringing my own chocolate chess set in which the pieces are entirely made out of chocolate. The first junior to play using this chess set will be able to win (and eat) any pieces that I have not captured. The fun part of this is eating the opponent's pieces as you catch them. Obviously once the pieces have been eaten there will not be any chance of a second game using this set.
There will also be a competition for members of the public to try and set up the chess board in the fastest time possible. It is unknown at the moment if there will be a prize for the winner at the time of writing, but if there is not one you will still have the glory of winning, and even if you do not win it should still be a bit of fun for the evening.
Members of the club who already live in Codsall will be on hand on the evening to explain more details about the club. There is no doubt the club plays competitive chess in the winter league season but it is also a very social chess club and this should come across at this event.
