St. Louis
Note: Coach Jay gives 3 Stars to this chess club!
“The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis is my version of Disneyland! I visited for five days and it wasn’t enough! If you have any excuse to go to St. Louis – do it! The club alone is worth the trip, but then there is the World Chess Hall of Fame right across the street as a super-bonus!” – Coach Jay
