It began as just an idea to get a game in over the holidays, and 2 days later there were 9 for coffee and chess at Panera Bread. Last night saw play from Ernie, Clany, Jerry, Rudy, Sal, James B., Stephanie, Bob L. and James' son Damien (who laid down a win to establish a spot in the club). Four boards were active all evening and plenty of games were played. They had to give us the evil eye around 9pm so they could lock the doors. Plan on playing again on this Saturday at Panera starting at 10am. Then we'll meet again as usual at 7pm on Tuesday, January 5 at the college.
