Nimbin chess: all in the moves

Been a while since you've sacrificed for tactical advantage? Want to put your hands on a bishop? Know how to protect your king from all attacks?

Those tactical thinkers at the Nimbin HEMP Embassy's HEMP Bar are holding their inaugural chess tournament this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11.

Everyone is welcome at the HEMP Bar (now also called the Polite Bureau) and the cost of entry is $10 or $5.

The competition starts at 10am Saturday. You can register anytime up until then.

You can register on the phone too, on 6689 1842, but you still have to be there at 10am.
