Thank you!

A warm welcome and thank you to two new faces that came to play at ANCC yesterday (29 March).

Jim and Miguel found ANCC via our ICA (thank you ICA!) presence on their website.  Everyone here at ANCC hopes to see Jim and Miguel frequently, as they are gentlemen and good players!

I devised a ladder for ANCC if any of the regulars are interested in maintaining one.  Currently we are having a great time playing through games (of our own, and others including GM's), analyzing endings, randomly playing various (and I do mean various! :)  ) openings, playing casual and more serious games, playing 1 VS 2 and of course, some bughouse here and there.

Come on out and join us!!  We start at 7pm, and play till Midnight or a little after, so there is plenty of time for whatever ails you chess wise!

PS: check out tourney page as I will be shortly posting official info for the upcoming Tourney on 5 June!!

Growth at ANCC!

This week was another fun night of chess at ANCC.  We are getting a good presence of East Aurora High School with current and past team players along with their Coach Brad.  ANCC certainly appreciates Alex & Salvador taking time to play with us Tuesday nights. 

Add them into other consistent players such as Kyle, Jake, Phil, Bill,  and other occasional visitors (James, Gary, and others), the ANCC has great expectations for a high performing membership.  Most of the members above are USCF tourney participants, and we hope to see them, and the rest of our members in ANCC's inaugural Tourney this summer.  Exciting times!

 We at ANCC always welcomes new players and visitors.  New to the game players, novice, intermediate, or experienced players are all welcome and encouraged to stop in, and become one of 'us' at ANCC!  We are relaxed, and/or as formal as you wish with PLENTY of room to spread out for a serious game while others may be 'playing thru' (analyzing) a game, playing quick games, playing casual games, playing bughouse (usually later in the evening lol  ) or just socializing.  The Turner's banquet room is large, and accommodating.

You need not bring in a chess set, just bring yourself and a friendly smile!
