A place where anyone is welcome to come, sip on a drink, relax, and not feel intimidated. Like the old English Pub, except with hot chocolate/coffee instead of beer, and chess instead of darts. Players of all strengths participate. The more experienced players tend to take a mentoring/teaching role to the less experienced players. It is a place where taking a move back is not frowned upon, thus the name of the club being 'The Mulligan Chess Club' (mulligan being a golf term for hitting the ball again, without a penalty, if you did not like your shot). Panera's is not charging us for the use of their store, but in return we usually buy something when we are there. We were established in May 2007.

We have sister groups

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.
