Grandmaster Chess Lecture This Thursday

This coming Thursday, July 16th, Grandmaster Josh Friedel will be giving a lecture at the Southwest Chess Club located in Hales Corners, WI.
The lecture will run from 7-9pm with a 15-20 min Q&A afterwards. Admission is free to members of the club.
If you are not a member you may join that evening for the prorated price of $5 (membership runs $10 annually so with only half a year left you pay just half price!)
We meet at 5635 S New Berlin Rd Hales Corners, WI 53130. Once you walk through the main doors just take the stairs down and you'll see us in the Meadows room to the left!
This is a great chance to see a great lecture by a GM at practically no cost to you.

This lecture and our entire upcoming Summer Lecture Series were arranged by Chris Wainscott, an Officer and Board Member of the Southwest Chess Club.  Chris also wrote the cover story in the July 2015 issue of Chess Life.  Be sure to check it out.
