Hi everyone,

Welcome to the new players who’ve joined our mail list in the last few days.

We still have spots available for this Sunday’s G25;D5 rated tournament. USCF-membership is required for this tournament. Please see https://bridgeopolis.com/chess for details and be sure to let me know if you’re planning to join us.

Friday nights seem good for Casual Chess and other games. Just today, we’ve added several additional quick & simple games to the three we already have including:

Othello
Code Names 
Code Names Duet
Point Salad
Connect Four
Sushi Go Party
Take 5
No Thanks

if you’ve never played these games, you should give them a try on Friday nights.  I’m hoping they will also attract other players who may be interested in learning/playing Chess.

Our next Casual Chess and Other Games night will be this Friday.

We are also working on setting up other tournaments beginning in September including:
– Weekly G75 tournaments and  Blitz tournaments. 
– Youth/Scholastic tournaments
– Rated and unrated tournaments 
– Cash Prizes and Trophies
– A semi-annual membership structure to provide discounts for members.  


Stay tuned for details!


Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
