New chess club in Durham!!!

My wife was working at a library in North Durham (NC) today and sent me this pic from her phone:


Huzzahhh! This place is very close to our house, and I think this coming Saturday is only the second time they are meeting, so I'm getting in on the ground floor.

Hopefully this link takes you to their web site (it isn't much, just a brief description from the library web site). Sometimes I think the site starts playing weird music, so be careful with your volume.

At any rate, I'll be there Saturday so if anyone wants to chess it up in Durham, come on over!

Unfortunately I'm booked the next couple of Saturdays, but I may try to make it after that. We'll see what you report back.

I hope the club becomes a succes and a force to reckon with in US chess. Have fun.

LOL chesstiger.

Yeah I am lucky, I could see her wishing I'd spend Saturday at home fixing the leaky sink in the bathroom. :)
