Chess You Can!

Come exercise your creative and problem-solving skills, improve your memory, and maybe even grow your brain with the newly formed Hood River Valley Chess Club. Both drop-in and instructional, the club invites all members of the community, ages 7 and over, to enjoy the many benefits of playing the Game of Kings.  The club is a passion project and favored pastime of local restaurateur Justin Williams, who ran the same program at Mosier School for three years.  The group meets Tuesday evenings from 5 to 6:30 in the Hood River Library Maker Space; all supplies are provided.  Whether you’re brushing up on your Italian Game or Queen’s Gambit, or simply curious to learn what those things are, you are welcome to join!
