They will provide plenty of boards and sets. Attendees should feel free to play organically but can receive lessons from the instructors during each meeting.

This club will be moderated by Colin Hargreaves who has been teaching chess since he was fourteen. For the last 10 years he has taught professionally in many private and public schools around Indy and the suburbs.
