This is a chess meetup in the Pacific Beach community of San Diego. We have a comfortable indoor location at the public library. All skill levels are welcome. Currently our members include beginners, intermediate players, and experts.
Do you prefer slow chess, blitz chess, clock or no clock? We've got you covered. Do you enjoy a little bit of friendly conversation during the game, or do you prefer to choose the best move in silence? Do you like to be able to take back or change a move, or do you follow the traditional touch-move rule? Come join us and find someone who's waiting for a game. Our emphasis is on enjoying a nice game of chess, and maintaining an environment where everyone feels welcome.
We will play casual chess for the first few meetups. Later, depending on group interest, we may have some fun tournaments. The library has several chess sets for our use. You are also welcome to bring your own, if you have one. Otherwise just bring a smile!
