CHESS CENTRE APPEAL – REDUCING THE GAP
The Covid-19 virus has placed a huge financial strain on the South Australian Chess Association (SACA) as we were forced to close the Chess Centre on 15th March 2020 due to both the Federal and State Government’s virus legislation. This closure, with the loss of income for SACA due to no entry fees from over-the-board tournaments, inter-club or inter-school matches at the Chess Centre, is expected to continue for some months. However we must still pay the monthly rent under our 5-year lease and despite a helpful rent reduction from our landlord we anticipate the shortfall for the year will be around the $8,000 mark. The Chess Centre has been operated by SACA in Ranelagh Street for over 30 years and it is an essential component of chess in South Australia for hosting both Adult and Junior events.
We are therefore appealing to YOU as a player and/or supporter of Adult and Junior Chess in South Australia to help reduce this gap financially and secure the long-term viability of SACA and the Chess Centre for current and future chess players.
To show your support for the Chess Centre, South Australian Chess Association and South Australian Junior Chess League in these challenging times please donate today whatever you are able to. All donations will be appreciated and acknowledged by name or anonymously if you prefer.
