DURBAN CHESS CLUB
PROGRAMME FOR 2017


The Club meets on a weekly basis from 6.45 pm to about 10.15 pm on Thursdays, at Saint Cyprian's Church hall in Umbilo Road. Directions to the venue: From the corner of Umbilo Road and Rick Turner (Francois) Road proceed along the right hand side of Umbilo Road past Hannah Road and past Pioneer Road. Look for the AFM Cleantech sign on the left hand side of the road, and the church hall is in the cul-de-sac on the right of Umbilo Road.

Details of planned Club events are given below. I have also added a calendar of KZN and selected SA events to my blog of KZN chess news.
