Chess + coffee

Hi, It's that time again!!!!  Chess + coffee +/- food.  

I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter break. Looking forward to catching up with all the regulars and hopefully we'll see some new faces too.

I'll be bringing along a friend or two so there will be at least 2 or 3 people. 

If you can bring along a chess set or two, that'd be great! Chess not your thing but you want to bring along another board game? Checkers? Monopoly? Hungry Hippos? That's fine too.  ( I hope you didn't take the hungry hippos thing too seriously, that'd be worrisome!)

Note that the picture below is not an accurate demographic representation of people who like chess.  Hard  to believe, but you don't have to be male, caucasian and retired.  

If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to text me (Cyn) on 0437842012.  Alternatively, you can email Jacqui who is the group co-ordinator.

    Hi Guys

    I was there from 2-3 pm, sitting inside with my Mum, chessboard out with the Meetup sign. Not sure why you didn't see us David?

    Mum and I had had it by 3pm, however Tracy and Murat arrived and played on.

    Looks like there was more that turned up after that?

    Goodo then - and see you all next time!

      Hi there David - i'm so sorry you came and didn't meetup with anyone - that is a real shame. I was feeling equally frustrated that no one turned up inside - I had the cafe put tables aside. I have some ideas to make the next meetup work better so we all actually meet up - ill post up a new date and details on that in the next few days. Jacqui

    I never got back to rave about the last meetup we had- at this totally fabulous place in Curtin called Beyond Q (thank you Sharon!) - they went to all this trouble to do a special menu for us and reserved this cool back room with antique books - it was so lovely! I was so touched - so I was thinking once the winter sets in we could meet there again - just be nice to get in a bit more sun before - hence Hudson's again. Beyond Q is downstairs in a basement.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
