We'll chat a little, then pair up to play. We'll try to match you with someone at a similar ability level. To keep the games moving, we'll use chess clocks (if you haven't used them before, they're easy and fun!).
Play chess like your life DOESN'T depend on the outcome! Ideal players are adults who know at least the basic rules, but don't take the game too seriously. You should be open to playing with a beer/glass of wine close at hand. You should have a very relaxed attitude about winning/losing. Group leader is a woman. Just for fun, fun, fun, and the chance to stay in practice.
