Chess is great, but hard to compete with Chi Town sports!

We had a small, but dedicated group of chess players this past Tuesday evening.  It is hard to compete when your club is in Chi Town, and the Bulls AND the Blackhawks are both playing in playoff games.  Especially, since the 'Hawks were in game 7 of 7.  However, we did turn on the TV in our playing area so our ANCC club members could watch/keep track of the game.  Needless to say, we didn't have many 'serious' games, but no matter, we had a ton of fun with casual games, playing random openings, and playing some 1 vs 2.  Thanks for the fun times !!! 

I hope to see many of you ANCC members, and other chess enthusiasts at tomorrows (Sat) DeKalbs chess clubs last Saturday tourney.  Don't forget, ANCC will be hosting our first tourney on 5 June.  It shall prove interesting, with a scholastic section also playing, and with Turners big once monthly family buffet in the morning.  I hope everyone will be open and patient to our first trying of hosting a tourney.  For whatever happens at that tourney, I will  be glad to take notice of all, and make necessary adjustments for the next one!!

From my Air Force days, people would write/say 'check six!'....  Now in my chess days, does that mean we would say/write check 'check'?  ;)

Till next time in the chess world....
