This inspired Meetups in San Diego
Mark your calendars, chess-lovers:
April 16, 2011 is the first-ever Chess.com Meetup day! The world's #1 chess site is taking chess to the streets - with a little help from you!...
It's simple! Help organize a Chess.com Meetup in your area at any hospitable coffee-shop, community center, etc. Then, just show up on April 16 and play!
This Meetup page will help local people coordinate on details like where to meet, who can bring chess gear, & so on.
This is going to be fun!
