Close to half of our members are under driving age, so if you are a parent with a chess playing kid, LCCC is the place to be! We have players of all ages and strengths, and we offer free instruction too! Stop on by.
Terry G. and Mike N. are heading to Howell on Thursday to teach chess to a Cub Scout den and hopefully get a few more players to the club on Monday. Either way, it is always a pleasure to spread the world’s best game!
As far as the chess played Monday, Scott M. kept his spot on the top rung of the ladder, while the Ladder got a new player joining it; Tim P. Good luck Tim!
Jason M. was again kind enough to pour over a couple of internet grandmaster games as a training exercise. Thanks Jason!
The 2nd Annual Fall International Chess Festival (FICF) is this coming weekend in Troy, Michigan at the Metropolitan Hotel at 5500 Crooks Rd.
LCCC will be well represented with five to ten players planning to take on the rest of the world. We had a great showing at the Michigan Open earlier this year – led by Vince V. and we expect our club to be a force again.
Possible LCCC entrants into the FICF are; Don J, John R, Ken T, Matt T, Mike N, and Vince V.
Hopefully, we will get a few more!
Even if you don’t play, stop on by and take in some of the chess action. Books and equipment will be for sale and some of the best players in the world will be in attendance (and not just the ones from LCCC!).
