October 2016 Update

Goodbye summer, hello fall! Now that we’re past the busy summer months and the weather has turned a bit colder and rainy, especially this weekend, we’re hoping to see more club members come out for our Saturday morning meetings.

We will have our regular open play meeting every Saturday in October starting at 10:00 a.m. in the coffee shop area of the Books-A-Million store at the Lycoming Mall.
The meeting dates are: 10/1, 10/8, 10/15, 10/22, 10/29.

For those who might be interested in meeting on a weeknight for casual chess, a small group of club members have started meeting on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 pm. in the café area at Wegman’s in Williamsport. Feel free to join us.

We are continuing to search for a location to resume our monthly USCF-rated quad tournaments. If you know of a location that might be available, please contact Jim Cunningham (jim.cunningham@outlook.com) or Solomon Francis (solomonfrancis@hotmail.com). We’re looking for a well-lit, relatively quiet room, with comfortable seating for 12-24 players.

The 2016 Tal Memorial chess tournament in Russia features 10 of the top grandmasters in the world. You can follow the tournament on Chess.com, https://www.chess.com/, or Chess24.com, www.chess24.com.
