If you would like to play rated games, please make sure you either have a current membership with the AGA or have paid them the tournament fee.  It will not be possible for me to take money at the door as we do for our formal Spring tournament.  If you have never joined the AGA before, please send me what email address you’d like to use, and I’ll have the AGA send you a voucher for a reduced cost initial membership.  Regardless, feel free to consult the AGA’s website regarding membership advantages and costs.

You can come and play, even if you do not square up with the AGA; however, your games cannot be officially rated.

I will bring clocks and some extra boards and stones; however, if you have equipment that you can bring, please do so.  Don’t let a lack of equipment stop you from coming, though.

We have moved our weekly Tuesday 7p meetings to Vesprs Coffee & Allures for a few weeks.  We’ll see how that works out and then make a final decision about where we’ll settle.

Broadways is moving and so our regular meeting location is no longer available.  We will probably use the next few weeks to try several locations to see what will work best for us.  Next week (Tue.16.Oct) will be at Flippers Pizza:

4498 North Alafaya Trail #352
Orlando, FL 32826

SELF-PAIR EVENT: Remember that our October self-pair event is THIS SATURDAY, from 11a – 4p on the UCF campus. We will meet in the breezeway of the John T. Washington Center ( http://map.ucf.edu/locations/26/john-t-washington-center/ ) if the weather holds. If it is raining, we’ll move to the student center food court.

Please check in with me before you start playing. I’ll need your AGA ID and your entry rank. Please make sure your AGA membership is up to date, as I won’t be able to handle this far you as I do for the Spring tournament. If you are planning to come and haven’t already told me so, please let me know. I’m trying to get a sense for who might be coming.

Don’t forget to register for this year’s Orlando Go Tournament!

It looks like Tuesdays look better after all.  We’ll be at Broadway’s tonight, and we’ll stick with Tuesdays for a while.
