Howick Chess Centre

 The New Zealand Chess Federation has announced the opening of a new chess centre in Auckland. The Howick Chess Centre (in Howick!) is a joint effort by Paul Spiller and the NZCF, providing both a venue for regular chess activities, and as a NZCF Office for the storage of historical items, and as a shop for NZCF items. 

Recognising the economic reality of such a venture, the Centre will be running until at least July 2023, at which time a review in its operation will take place.

A worthy initiative by Paul Spiller and the NZCF, and one I am sure many other chess federations would like to emulate.
