[The Sarasota Chess Club is a new idea to have an actual club with membership dues to cover purchase of equipment and rental of a playing/meeting space. The club will sponsor official USCF tournaments, chess instruction, and tournaments that are more frequent than the three events per school year that Suncoast Chess currently organizes.
