The San Gabriel Valley Chess Club has a new home! We will be meeting on Friday evenings from 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM at the Pasadena – Sierra Madre YMCA in the city of Sierra Madre (611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd).
The YMCA is located in a picturesque setting that we think everyone will truly enjoy. We have a large playing hall on the second floor of the building, an expansive parking lot, clean bathroom facilities, and even a kitchen we can use for refreshments.
Because we thought it best for everyone to first get acquainted with the new location, our first meeting on February 21 will be both an open house and blitz tournament. It will also give us an opportunity to tell you more about the club’s plans and to hopefully get some of you interested in serving on our Board of Directors. We will start a six round rated tournament the following week on February 28.
Friday night chess has a long tradition in the Greater Pasadena area and we hope to keep it going. Hope to see you all there!
