- Before school starts – so we can contact schools and let them know we are here.
- Before the LCCC League starts – so we can offer league play to new members
- Before The
Open – in Michigan ! - starts – and we can promote team camaraderie and help for new tournament players. And a few weeks at LCCC to prepare with lessons and tourney training. Livonia
- Before indoor winter activities begin at churches and other clubs and we can contact them as an option for their members – either as new members here or as a Team Chess Challenge.
- The time when festivals and fairs are happening and we can look to be a presence at a couple of them.

Twenty-One Players on a Cool Monday Night
It was a nice turnout as maybe the one week layoff kind of re-kindled desire for live chess action. Lots of casual chess was played and a fun time was had by all.
Luigi M, his wife and four sons brought pizza for the entire club! What a nice gesture! Thank you!
Mike S. returned to the LCCC action after a long absence. Great to see you back and we hope you get here a little more regular.
Terry G. gave some chess instruction to our younger players – between bouts of pizza munching and pop of course. Thanks Terry.
LCCC now has a non-mandatory club membership fee and we are up to 15 paid members, with a few more soon to join.
LCCC has another 25 “associate members” that are regular and semi-regular attendees.
LCCC also has over 50 inactive members and quite a few on-line members from other states.
Summer time is usually a slower chess time, but the Club President would like to propose a membership push in August. This would be good timing as it is:
Let the discussions and planning begin! I think fifty weekly attendees on occasion is possible. We average 18 now. Doubling that average is the goal!
