NO tournament on Valentine's Day, This Tuesday, February 14, 2017

There will be NO G/29 Tournament this month, as this Tuesday, as you are most certainly aware, is Valentine's Day!

Several of us have made our usual tasteless jokes in the past couple of weeks, on a theme of "who takes their date to a chess brawl in a bar, on Valentine's Day?" Well, who knows, but ...

... NEVERTHELESS, boards and pieces, and a number of chess players, will make their usual appearance at the Westport Flea Market this Tuesday. This will be another night of casual games, fun and frolic, for those who chose to attend. 💙🍺 (And once again, with boring, yet serious, regularity: Please don't drink and drive)

Our next scheduled tournament will be held on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, our monthly G/10 event.

A great opportunity to take a break from the insanity of it all!

IT ONLY LOOKS EXPENSIVE!

For only two dollars, or one dollar if you are a student, you can support the Westport Chess Club, and have a great time, without worrying about being in time trouble! 🕚🕦

BRING YOUR CHESS CLOCK! 🕦🕦 ... if you have a functional chess clock, then please bring it along. If not, then no worries! There will still be enough clocks for the tournament.
