In Batavia, NY, there is no chess club at the high school or college, and Batavia (NY) Community Chess Club is only in the planning stages.  We need money for regulation sets and want to donate money to the local library so it might get chess books it doesn't have, which will then be available in the entire NIOGA Library System.

Humble beginnings

Supplies we started out with.  We need regulation sets and pieces for our chess club!

Chess books we want the library to buy

This is an example of the chess book collection we want the local library to buy. The library told me they must buy the books new from their own source.  We will donate the money that should cover the cost of the books we want and request they buy them for the library.

Our new sets

I ended up taking matters into my own hands and bought some paper regulation boards and standard pieces.  I got the cheapest, yet quality, boards and pieces I could, around $6/set, even though I quite literally couldn't afford them.  Any money donated (minus processing fees out of my hands) will go to buy more sets and more durable vinyl boards or go toward the donation for the library book collection.

What a set looks like

Current information on the club can be found at Batavia (NY) Community Chess Club Facebook Group
