Don Pyne is a chess coach in Alachua County. He will kick off our first Chess Club gathering on Thursday, Oct. 11 from 4:00 - 5:30 pm in the Foundation Room. He works primarily with elementary school students through the Alachua County Scholastic Chess Association, running clubs and tournaments as well as giving group and individual lessons.
Chess For All Ages will provide instruction for begginers and play opportunity for all levels. We will analyze games from the Masters and work on puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty. Basics will be covered in detail as well as the finer points of strategy and tactics.
This will be a monthly series. Our future dates are: Nov. 8, Dec. 13, Jan. 10, Feb. 7 and Mar. 14.
Come to learn. Come to play. Most importantly, come to have fun playing the world's most popular board game. All ages are welcome. Please join us for this cerebral, fun game!
