Starting in August, meet at high noon on the first Monday and the second Saturday of every month with the Charbonneau Chess Club.

Look for the giant 3-ft high chess set in the game room of the old clubhouse.

Peter Shikli, a chess instructor specializing in newbies, will be there for the first hour. Regular-sized chess sets will also be available.

Keep your noodle sharp with the mental exercise, and make friends who like to think. The giant chess set is a great way for grandparents to spend time with the grandkids.
