The Washington, D.C. Chess Meetup Monthly Meetup

  • Apr 15, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us at 6:30 for dinner and chess. Sometimes one or two people arrive early, and others drift in later. We play until at least 8:00, which is usually enough time for a couple of games, maybe three or four. If you have a specific time which works for you, please e-mail me or post it on the message board. I will put it on the calendar if three people are interested.

We have a wide range of skill levels in our Meetup, and everyone is welcome. If you are a beginner, I encourage you to use our site to introduce yourself to members who are also beginners.

    Hi there, my name is Abraham and I used to attend this group regularly, but my schedule has recently prevented me to come (which is sad)! I was wondering if anyone is open for casual one-and-one match ups on the weekend? If so, just send me an email at [masked].

    Dear Michael - Thank you for hosting this Chess meet up.
    It was a low key and enjoyable experience, especially w/o the dreaded timers ;-).
    I hope we can meet more often than 1 x per month! Cheers. JM

    Couple of quick questions. Am i required to bring a board to this event? Do i need a board to be part of this event?
    Are you guys playing within your level of difficulty? I get my a** handed to me on a daily basis from my android app, so this would be a good time for me to stop playing the machine.
    Also, anyone near Crystal City all the way to Ballston, if you want to play a few games a week let me know?

      Thanks Michael. Also why are these meetings spaced out so far. Why not hold them biweekly?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
