Local Quads

Finally got around to visiting another chess club. Quite a drive from town. Got there around 7p and left after 9p. There was quite a few people there.

The president of the club also asked me if I was interested in joining their Go club. Oh man, I told him I didn't have two lifetimes to work on improving at intellectual games, and I hear Go is even more complicated with more possible scenarios.

Don't foget to vote for USCF if you haven't done so. I followed Susan Polgar's recommendations and voted for Mr. Randy Bauer, Mr. Joel Channing, Mr. George John, and Mr. Robert Tanner. See her blog for more details.

hey pawnsensei, I'm sorry about this negligence. I'm moving from home
to home, and I thought I'd be able to juggle responsibilities. turns
out, this has been one of the busiest and craziest times of my life.

things should settle down now. and I plan on representing my team well.

harmless (xeones)

Hey Harmless,

Glad to hear from you. Please post to the Team DeLaMaza ICQ Group. You are already a member, now you have to indicate which Rounds you will be able to play. Thanks.

Hi Pawn, nice to hear you are at a chessclub. Do you play there in a team against other clubs to? (I do, and it is nice)
Are there much members?
Do they have a internet site?
I hope for you you will be one of the club tigers!!! Beat them, brother!

Hi Margriet,

I wish I could join the club but it's a little far for me to attend every week. I want to try to get down there as much as possible though.

There was quite a few people there. I would say about 16 or so people playing. I haven't heard of inter-club competitions yet. I think most of the people there were open/unrated like me. Just come to play when they see other people playing.
