Chess Club

The new Aquidneck Island Chess Club, an affiliate of the U.S. Chess Federation, has been established at the Middletown Public Library. Players of all ages and levels are welcome. Bring a set if you have one. However, some will be available. The first meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 4:30 p.m. and meetings will be held weekly on Tuesdays. The meeting is timed to occur just four days after the start of the 2018 World Chess Championship, where an American will be challenging the title holder for the first time since Bobby Fischer won in 1972. Locally owned Knights- DenGames.com will be donating door prizes. Pre-registration is not required. For more information, call the library at 401-846-1573.
