Welcome Juniors to the 2017-2018 Season

Here's a message from Harry Jordan posted on our Facebook Group:

Hello everyone:

We trust you all had a great summer, and with the summer coming to an end you’re thinking about the Kingston chess club.
As you know we have both a junior and senior chess club in Kingston. Both clubs will be starting back on September 11, 2017.
For the junior club:
We will be at the Princess Street United Church, The Chess Club, from 5:30 PM on Monday, September 11 to start registration. After that the junior club will start at 6pm. (please note we are only here at 5:30pm on the first Monday.)
The senior club will start at 7:15 PM right after the junior club. We asked that all members who are not playing in the senior tournaments be picked up by 7:15pm.
If your child will not be attending the junior chess club this year; please feel free to pass on our information on to other children, so that they may know about and have fun playing chess this year. The same goes for the senior club; please feel free to pass our information on.
Below is an overview of when we’ll be playing each tournament. As well, we have posted all the dates we will be closed, not to mention the Christmas pizza party, and pizza party at the end of the year.
The date of the chess camp will also be posted.
Some general rules.
