      Rotorua Roaring Knights Chess Club

      The Rotorua Roaring Knights CC is a new chess club in Rotorua. Chess enthusiasts from all ages and levels are welcome to join. Chess is a great way for you to train your memory and reasoning skills, use your imagination and so much more: chess teaches you how to make decisions and how sometimes you have to give up something good to obtain something better. Good chess players think what the opponent's next move will be and thus learn to look at a situation from another's point of view. Chess also teaches you that good outcomes are the result of the combined effort of all the pieces on the board. One strong piece usually is insufficient to make a difference. The skill to coordinate all the pieces, letting them work together is one of the keys to improve in chess. Do you like playing chess? Come along with some friends and play against others from different schools. Do you want to learn how to play chess? Every week, we organise a chess lesson. Also absolute beginners are welcome and we'll be happy to explain you the very basics. Do you want to improve your skills? Advanced lessons are given as well. Biscuits are available as well. Please bring a 5 $ contribution. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Please don't hesitate to contact Laurens Goormachtigh at Goormachtigh.Laurens@gmail.com or 021 177 4887 should you have any further questions.
