Calling all chess enthusiasts! Chess & Cheers aims to foster an increased interest and enjoyment of chess, all while sipping a few beers. The group will provide both an environment for experienced chess players to improve their abilities and an opportunity for newcomers to learn the game.
When we say "all skill levels are welcome", we mean it. Are you nationally ranked? Did you play a bit in high school? Are you new to the game but just want to get good enough to shut your annoying uncle up at Christmas? This meetup is for you!
Drink a few beers and meet some cool new people -- all while playing a couple games of chess!
We'll have a few extra chess boards, but if you have a portable one to bring, we'd appreciate it. Cheers!
**Note: since this is an outdoor venue, this date is weather pending. I'll finalize the date once we know the forecast.
Chess and Cheers is taking advantage of the Parks on Tap schedule to take our favorite game outdoors. We're initially choosing parks near our homes, but please let us know if there's a particular park you'd like to meet at.
If you're bringing your own board, you might want to bring a magnetic or weighted set in case there's wind. Hope to see you there!
