Join Us - Weekly Chess Meet at Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas

Interested to meet up and play chess?

A weekly chess session organized by Najib Wahab will be held every Wednesday evening from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at Knowledge Mine Tuition Center located in Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas. The first weekly session will start tomorrow, 19th February 2014, and will continue weekly and if required, more additional weekly sessions including weekly events will be held at the center. Knowledge Mine address is Blok L, Unit 1.9/2.9 Plaza Damas, Jalan Sri Hartamas.

Plaza Damas is rather easy to access - via Jalan Duta, Penchala Link or Kerinchi Link.
This is a free and open session (no fees shall be imposed) for everyone to participate, a place where chess players can meet up and chat, play a game of chess with fellow chess players, or enjoy reading a collection of chess books available in the mini library.

As this is a voluntary site provided by the management of Knowledge Mine, visitors are encouraged to bring their own sets and clocks although a limited number of sets and clocks will be made available.

Other events planned at the same location will include a monthly chess event, team event, blitz event, weekly team/individual league and many more activities for players from all playing levels and age groups.

Currently, there is a beginners chess class being organized every Saturday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm with more classes to be added soon.

If you are into Sabutteo - the table football game, the Knowledge Mine is also the place to be

For parents and non playing partners, there are plenty of eateries and entertainment within the complex including Starbucks (directly below the Tuition Center), TGIF, a Supermarket, convenient stores (7-11), Karaoke and many more. From my personal experience, the Mee Rebus and Mee Bandong served at the Warong nearby is definitely something not to miss.

For those driving to the center, there are ample parking spots within the complex basement with rates as cheap as RM1 per hour - as a reminder, do avoid the open car park above as it can be costly.  

For more information, please contact Najib Wahab at +6016.338.2542 or email najib.wahab [at] chess-malaysia.com
