The reason for this post is just to remind us all that Westgate was birthplace of Kenya’s newest Chess Club (Westlands Chess Club or WeCC).  Paras Gudka who was the President of the club set it up in the food court of Westgate Mall.  I bring you some old photos from the club meets.  All photos courtesy of Westlands Chess Club and taken from their Facebook page.

The club then found a new home at the Corner Plaza in Westlands.
