Hult Chess Club Temporary Move
The Hult chess club will continue to meet while Schnucks is using their Community Center meeting room for interviews to staff the new Schnucks on Peoria's north side.
Our normal Schnuck's meeting room will be unavailable to us from September 12th through mid November, so we will be moving our Friday night meetings to the basement of Proctor Hospital Professional Building where Unity Point holds their training meetings.
The space there is large and well lighted. We have had numerous chess workshops there in years past. Enter from the rear of the building on the side nearest to the hospital. There is plenty of free parking available there. Take the elevator down to the basement and our meeting room will be about half way down the hall way on your left.
We'll still be meeting at Schnuck's until then, but we'll see you at Proctor September 16th!
