The big set

Good news for Canberra chess players who are wondering when the giant chess set in Garema Place is ever getting used. The ACT Government has decided to put the pieces out during the week, as part of efforts to 'jazz up' Canberra's centre. They will be out from around 8 till 2 each weekday, so if you work in the city, or are just passing through, lunchtime is a good time to have a go.
I plan to pay a visit over the next couple of days, to both take some pictures, and see how popular it is. If it attracts a decent crowd, Street Chess might even think of expanding to a midweek blitz event, if only every couple of weeks.
