Hi everyone, and welcome to the Seattle Chess Meetup! This Meetup is intended to be a casual get together for chess players of all levels-- beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Members of this meetup range in ability from novice to master. If anyone is interested in being an assistant organizer, let me know. Assistant organizers can set up their own meetings. It might be a particularly good idea for advanced chess players to set up their own meetups.
Bottom line: This meetup is for ANYONE! Please come out and join us!
• What we'll do
Thursdays 6-9PM. Open to all ages, the SeaTac Community Center is open for chess night! A free drop in opportunity for players of all levels to come and play some games. There will be one oversized chessboard open to play on and some boards that can be checked out. So bring your board and get your game on. Checkmate!
• What to bring
Chessboards and clocks as desired.
Bring your own sets and clocks. An expert player will discuss how to apply basic strategy like pawn structure and initiative to a game, for the first half hour at a side table if any are interested.
This meetup is shut down until the COVID-19 crisis is less of a threat. The meetup includes several vulnerable elderly.
I have set this up as a repeating weekly meetup.
We typically play at tables near Ceres Roasting toward the middle of the main floor. When weather is nice we may play outside at tables behind Ceres Roasting.
