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!
