I am sad to announce there will be no chess this upcoming Tuesday, 10 April. 

An interview opportunity presented itself in the last couple days which prevents me from being present at Turners this Tuesday to host ANCC.  While I am sad missing another great night of chess and comradeship, ANCC was not able to use the downstairs banquet facilities this night anyway, due to it being utilized by a paying party.  

So, our night of chess 'almost' under the stars (we would have played under a pavilion by the softball field)  will have to wait until a future time.

We will hold ANCC the following week, on 17 April.  See you then!!

It's a glorious day outside today, so of course I am thinking about playing chess!  Well, ok, that does not make much sense, but in a way, it does.  Bear with me.

First:  Yes, ANCC will be meeting tomorrow night, 3 April for another installment of our chess club here in Aurora Illinois, meeting at Turners.  I hope to see everyone and anyone there to compete in our on-going rated tourney (for those that have previously registered and are competing), or to play casual (yet still competitive! :)  ) games, and/or to visit and socialize with a great group of people.

Secondly:  This point brings me back to the outside bit.  ANCC will not have access to the downstairs banquet room of Turners on 10 April.  This is one week from tomorrow.  HOWEVER, we can meet in one of the pavilions up by the softball field if we choose to do so.  The pavilions are large, covered of course, and have picnic tables.  If you have an opinion one way or the other, I would love to hear it.  If no one wishes to experience chess 'in the park' kind of feel, I would like to know, as I don't want to be the only one to show up!  So please, please, voice your opinion and thoughts to me concerning club on 10 April, and if we should hold club, or cancel for that night.
