New Chess Group Starting

This is great news! Wish it was closer to where I live, drat! A new local chess group is starting up - here's the scoop: Friday May 1 Hi Chess players: The new Lakefront Chess Group, the main initial purpose of which is to simply set up this Alterra Lake front coffeehouse, as a place to find a week-end/Sat game, within an initial time frame (which can be modified). Hope to see you there sometime! Thank you! Paul Edquist Introducing “Chess @ the Lakefront”! WHERE: The scenic Lakefront Alterra Coffeehouse Across from the Marina 1701 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr Milwaukee 53202 Use“MapQuest” as required. Please do not call Alterrra re our group; they are very busy Saturdays! Look for us outside, on the north side area tables or inside, the south room, first floor, if the weather is marginal. Playing outside will be the summer/warm weather default! WHEN: Every Saturday formally commencing May 2 from approximately 11AM -2PM You can come earlier or stay later of course! Alterra Sat. hours: 7AM-10PM (Our hours can be changed via a poll of players consistently attending.) OTHER INFORMATION: BYO sets, clocks, (“louder” clocks only outside); BYO refill mug for $1.25 initial fill; and 50 cent refills! Other food on site. Great outdoor tables for playing; some picnic tables for four players; multi-level seating inside. Smoking OK outside. Free parking in adjacent lot; use their north driveway; but suggest first, parking directly across the street, lakeside, in the Marina parking lot, due to busy Saturdays! Or park on Lincoln Memorial Dr., just north. We hope to grow, hold informal tournaments, and perhaps have a team for USCF or area team competition vs. the local USCF affiliate club and other groups. Ideas and help are always welcome! Tell your friends! Contact: Paul (former president of UWM Chess Club) or Galen
