BOWSER BISHOPS CHESS CLUB
The chess club is happy to support the Soupy Cafe in the Community Hall. We are an active group in the community founded in 2008 and subsidized in 2009 by the Regional District of Nanaimo allowing us to purchase equipment. Since 2011, we have been able to assist Bowser Builders Supply to conduct an August open chess tournament that attracts chess players and families to our area and brings a bit of income to local businesses. We meet Saturdays at noon at Henry's Kitchen to play and encourage everyone to join us. The chess club, Bishops of Bowser, encourage the whole community to support the Soupy Cafe and help those who may need a bit of support in our community and will have representatives at the Soupy Cafe who will help you to learn the great game of chess.
The Soupy Cafe is run by volunteers.
