    California Chess: California's Central Coast a Hotbed for Chess

    California's Central Coast is a hotbed for chess. This small community has come alive in recent months with many new chess clubs and players. One key factor is the free online chess playing site ChessManiac.com.

    Here is a listing of the current chess clubs in this area:

    Morro Bay Chess Club
    Paso Robles Chess Club
