Girls Chess Night Summer Edition 2017

Girls Chess Night resumes this summer at a new location for June and July.  Girls, you are invited to the new Yes Class located at 411 Hughes Rd. Suite C. in Madison.  Bring your chess sets, but if you do not have one we will provide them for you.  Yes Class owner Eun Park (mother to Columbia Elementary students Jason and Isabelle) has graciously donated her space on Tuesday evening for us to meet in the summer. 

Girls Chess Night moves to a monthly format but will meet for 1 1/2 hours each time.  In the summer, we plan to meet on Tuesday June 20th and Tuesday July 25th.   The school year schedule is below.  Contact Girls Chess Coordinator Rosi Rajbhandari if you have questions:  rosirajbhan@gmail.com.
