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!
