Hi Chess friends! Long time no see. Chess teaching is winding down for the summer (new students cheerfully accepted, mind you) though we will still have Wood Sense Chess Club in Duncan on Mondays from 6 to (just before) 8 pm. I'm looking at arranging a chess tournament in the Cowichan Valley. Comments welcome.

Wood Sense Chess Club activity for the summer

Hi chess friends! The Saturday Children's Chess Class has come to an end for the season. However, our Monday evening chess continues every Monday (except when the library has a film night) at the library in Duncan from 6 pm to just before closing at 8 pm.

Those wanting individual chess instruction or tutoring please contact me, Nigel Hanrahan, in one of the following ways:
1. cell = 250 701 1767
2. e mail = Exclam DOT online AT gmail DOT com
3. You can also post here on the blog and I will get your message.

I am presently conducting a survey at the chess club. Let us know what you would like to do/see at the club. Should we have a social get-together this summer?

Jason Bell - another published game!

"I believe it all starts with the love for wood."

I found this chess documentary on the web. The quote I have used for my title is the basis for the title of the documentary: The Love for Wood.

And what could be more appropriate for a blog called "Wood Sense" (gwyddbwyll in Welsh) than a film about the love for wood?

Enjoy. Here is the link.

2013 Jack Taylor Memorial

Jason Bell and I, two players from the Duncan club, played in the Jack Taylor Memorial Tournament in Victoria this past weekend. I may post some games from that event.

The Victoria Chess Club web page is over HERE.

More to follow.
