Re: [chess-7] Capitol Hill meetups - i like the dupont location for meetups, though i think if it were possible, a chinatown/gallery place location (or metro center) would be optimal. i say that only b/c it's closest to the most number of metro lines, so it would maximize convenience sheridan Oct 16, 2007 1:01 AM

Re: [chess-7] Capitol Hill Cosi - I played last Wednesday with Steve at the Conneticut Ave. Cosi. Only three people including myself attended. I think we'd all be better off if there was more coordination about game times and who is bringing a board. user 4. Jul 17, 2007 12:42 PM

Re: [chess-7] Proposed move to Virginia - Hello Minerva, I like the suggestion about Borders; I'll give them a call to make sure it's O.K. to hold meetings there. Also, Kris, would you like to be an assistant organizer and help manage events at Cosi? That way it can be on a night that works Michael Jun 20, 2007 11:44 AM
Re: [chess-7] Proposed move to Virginia - Hello Everyone, I think I miscommunicated to the group about scheduling Meetups, so I want to clarify. Weeknights at Cosi (Monday or otherwise) are actually very convenient times for me. I proposed adding a second location for our group to accomodate Michael Jun 20, 2007 9:42 AM
Re: [chess-7] Proposed move to Virginia - I will consider starting a D.C. group when I have a chance.... on a day I can actually attend the meetups. :) That way, people can join both the VA and DC groups and attend the location that best suits them. --- Peter wrote: Kris Jun 20, 2007 9:06 AM
