Good Times!

Hello all, and thanks to all of you that came to out to the ANCC last night. Again, some new faces. (Thanks for coming in Carl!!  Carl is a master level player, wishing to integrate into the local chess scene after newly arriving in the area, and we wish him well on his quick adjustment.  Everyone here at ANCC look forward to seeing you again at ANCC.

There is much going on at ANCC.  We have the first games of our in-house rated tourney completed (more on that in a bit), and some wonderful non-rated games going on as well.  People sitting and chatting about chess, and life, and people playing thru games, solving chess puzzles, and discussing other chess related topics, and again, just enjoying an atmosphere of respect and comradeship.  I truly love coming out to ANCC and 'hanging out' with the great people of ANCC. 

I have closed the entries into our in-house tourney.  I had it open for 3 weeks, and players needed to know how many players, thus, the length of time the tourney may last.  We have 8 players:  Jason, Kellebrant, Kevin, Kyle, Mark, Matt, Michael, and myself playing.  I will be posting some of the games on the tab dedicated to these rated tourney games on this site, with the first ones hopefully posting tomorrow.  Keep an eye on that tab and games! Kellebrant and Kevin are a couple of ANCC's younger players, and their chess future looks bright for those two!

In other news, our combined team of ANCC and Molex, will be playing Fermilab tonight for our current CICL match.  Fermi is a tough challenge, and we have some top boards not able to play, and/or sick.  Lets pull together, garner some good luck, and make a run at Fermi!

Till later in the week, when I post our in-house rated tourney games, and post how we did versus Fermi,

Darin, for the ANCC.
