    I recently moved to brisbane well not recently about a year ago, And i've been searching for a local chess club with no real luck, There used to be one in ipswich which seems to have vanished of the face of the earth. So basically just seeking people in the area (ipswich) Who might be interested in getting a club going.

    I live in Sydney, and as far as I can tell chess' popularity has not reached the 'land down under'.

    To far away! What do want a chess club right next door.

    You get the 23 bus to Kangaroo Korner, take the tube to Wonga Bonga,
    turn left at the statue of Don Bradman and it's downstairs in the Aussie Arms.

    Tell Bluey I sent you.

    Have a look through this list:
    http://thelocaltourist.com.au/seq/Organisations/Game_Play.htm

    It gives a contact for Ipswich who may be able to tell you if it's still around. The other possibility here is Wacol which isn't TOO impossible from Ipswich.
