No way Igor, you better come down yourself and provide tuition for chessplayer mums preparation for THEIR games!
By the way, continuous and actual parent participation in junior chess developmental programs, looks to work miracles at BHCC. It is wonderful to see parents and kids working together for the same goal.
Plus, it creates a great family atmosphere and I believe, apart from its educational and sporting merits, the chess playing nights at BH provide for a great recreational outing.
All come down and enjoy the whole thing! You 'll love it!
Cheers and good luck!

The Box Hill Chess Club captain is personally sponsoring the mothers day gifts and the mothers day trophy. Will there be any mothers playing? and will we be able to award the trophy. Let us demonstrate what we do at Box Hill
