SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Joshua Host, a board member with the Boys & Girls Club of the South Coast Area (B&GC), recently started a chess club program at the organization. Some of the children taught the game at the club have been playing for as little as five months, but Host said he wants to raise students’ skills high enough to be competitive in local tournaments.
Any child who is a member of the B&GC can join the chess club. Annual memberships for the club are $60. For more information, visit www.bgcsca.org.
