There is another chess club starting up in town, not affiliated with the Joplin Chess Club USCF affiliate. From what I understand it is also going to be another USCF affiliate for the Joplin area. Once I know the affiliate ID I will update with that information.
It is called the PC Chess Club and is headed up by Michael Farren.
Meeting Location: Hardee’s, 1641 W. 7th St, Joplin
Time: 6 p.m. Thursday nights
The club offers classes, lectures, training and tournaments. Open to anyone.
